Cleansing says
CLEANSING is a project developed to visualize the layers of life that we sometimes have to shed in order to move on. It is about improvisation, forgetting and remembering in order to create and reconnect. It’s about hard to move lumps in our history, and determined, rhythmic tending it takes to smooth them out.

Funda plays with her large silk scarf, called a “veil” as she dances through live music, light, the physical space of the gallery, the audience and the projected images of flowing sand.

The veil carries a strong symbolism as well. It is the hair and body covering used by wealthy Muslim women as a part of Hijab and Burqa’s. Thus, play with what was once a tool of oppression becomes an act of rebellion and assertion of freedom.

Through play, the past is sorted out and a strong foundation in the present is created.
