by Hannah and Ian Keildson

a young womans journey from innocence to consciousness
and her struggle to find her own identity
despite the pressures of her family and society
to conform to their ideas and expectations

 

ACT ONE

 

The first act shows
the impossible struggle of
the adolescent trying to piece together
an identity for herself from
the conflicting convictions,
ideologies and predjudices
of the members of her family and,
in the second scene,
her consequent yearning to escape
from the intolerable confusion
that this brings by creating a
fantasy soulmate who will
mirror her true self
for her

ACT TWO

The Second act
is her fall from grace
into a world of archetypal
figures who tempt her
with reflections of her
fears and desires.
The violent inner conflict
caused by the consequences of these encounters
finally forces her to make a
fearful decision
to
free
herself

from her family

ACT THREE

The third act
is a dance of knowingness, redemption,
and the discovery of life
in the ashes
of disillusionment.
An invocation of the
eternal principles
of symetry and balance
in the individual awareness,
and their reflection
in the community,
nature,
and the cosmos
