White dress, water, bucket
Marriage, motherhood and womanhood are three things that are expected of a woman. At least one or more of those things call for sacrifice, mainly of self. A woman gets lost and is hard to understand what exactly makes her what she is, she doesn’t even know. She doesn’t know so she hides, she becomes invisible. When she is there, no one sees her. When she leaves her trail becomes visible and is more definable.
In this performance, Natalia cleaned the floors including in between the seats of a Black Box theatre. During intermissions she dipped her long white dress into the bucket and wiped the floors. As the floors got cleaner her white dress got visibly darker and dirtier. She did not make eye contact with anyone in the audience and kept her head down throughout.
