Transformation Daze

Transformation Daze

Vernita E Nemec AKA N'Cognita. Transformation Daze, 2005.

Description:
This solo Transformation Daze was commissioned for an exhibition in Darmstadt, Germany, in their world famous gardens. Translating the theme of gardens into a Butoh performance, I am a caterpillar that becomes a butterfly, which morphs into a snake.? Layers of costume are removed as I finally morph into a snake that eats the apple in the Garden of Eden. In this image, I am still a caterpillar. The next time I hope to perform this piece with these costumes on a shore washed up with trash from our polluted waters...a 21st Century garden...
