Meh Mudda Deh Sea
A performance by Christopher Bisram

Saturday April 9, 1pm – 3:30pm
Location: Hallett’s Cove Beach
Live on instagram @chrisbisram_

Meh Mudda Deh Sea, or the standard English translation My Mother the sea, is a collaborative interdisciplinary performance piece exploring our relationships with each other and the waters that surround us. The event will take place at the beach next to Socrates Sculpture Park, and is in collaboration with Kin To The Cove. 

This project is meant to memorialize my mother, and be a space for conversations about our waterways and our connections to those we hold dear. 

The day will begin with a beach cleanup at 1, then move on to two vocal performances (1:30-2:00) by Christian Mclean and Rebel Ali, followed by a letter writing session  (2:35-:2:45) exploring our relationships with those around us. This is done as a form of mindfulness to take in everything we feel for those around us to pay tribute to those bonds. 

Then we will have a dance performance (2:25-2:2:30) by Alyssa Arguelles, Danielle Akojenu, and Lexie Aponte who I have danced with for about 4 years. Followed by another vocal performance (2:50-3:00) by Jenna Belabed . The event will end with a poem (3:05-3:15) written by me to honor both the waters and my Mother. 

My hope for this project is that we are able to see how our relationship to the sea and those around us are one in the same. Like the sea we are constantly moving, pushing and pulling away from one another.
