Gareth Chambers - Llaeth

LLAETH is an experimental live movement piece, which attempts to explore the relationship the male body once had with the Mother’s body.

Psychoanalytic theory tells us that prior to our acceptance in the order of language and society, we were at peace with feminine energy, living without judgement and repression. The Mother and her body are rejected in order to find our own sense of self and anything that can be associated with the feminine body is abject or taboo. It disturbs, disrupts and transgresses the boundaries of order. Can the truth be found in the body/energy of the Mother?
