The Ceremony House is an ongoing process, physical build, porous site, performance installation, underground ripple. It emerged as a future vision at the River Wyre in Lancashire in 2015, working with artists Zierle and Carter. I imagined a house, built with river stones, by a group of womxn who had once been the stones, been separated from the stones, and were coming back into a relationship with the stones, finding their way blindly into ceremony, sound, rhythm, listening. They moved and re-shifted the world through this attendance to earth.
▲ inhabits and propels the Ceremony House. In one version, we actually build the house, up on the fells, a group of young and old. We know where to place each stone through the work of voice and sound.
An iteration of the Ceremony House will be presented at Siobhan Davies Dance for the autumn Open Choreography evening 2019
