Metamorpha is an autobiographical, audio-visual performance and album that explores the boundaries and limitations of the human psyche, the stages of metamorphosis, and the darkness that occurs before the emergence of light. The caterpillar’s old body dissolves and dies before becoming a butterfly, just as old structures must dissolve and die as we enter into a new era as a collective.

The performance takes place within a cocoon-like structure suspended in space – with the performer confined within. The floating videography suggests the subtle emanation that surrounds us all, revealing the private universe we each inhabit. Trapped within a veiled prison, the artist probes the questions; Where do you begin and I end in a new world of social distancing? Limitations on my freedom appear to be imposed from the outside, what if they are actually controlled from within? Am I equally as enslaved to my limiting belief structures as to external authority?

With the use of projections that tell an abstracted story of metamorphosis – a polymorphic projected image evokes the notion that we are multifaceted beings, constantly evolving from one version of ourselves into the next – and questions which of those identities, shaped by the world itself, is the authentic self. It communicates the archetypal story of the heroine's journey guiding us in a descent into darkness, and back towards the awakening light. The artist embarks on a cathartic and transformative quest for liberation from within her personified veil, endeavouring to liberate herself – from herself.
