Searching and Knowing


The Rev Dr Joyce Parry-Moore (Washington, USA)

World premiere live vocal piece with movement and electronic score, expressing the journey through a breast magnetic imaging test. Soprano, priest, coach, and survivor Joyce Parry Moore joins two dancers to create healing images of Valkyries, playing children, shaman. German composer Stefan Hakenberg set Parry-Moore’s poetry – influenced by Psalm 139 and the words of medieval mystic Dame Julian of Norwich – to vocal music, and the sounds recorded from an actual breast MRI into accompaniment, painting the inner experience of a woman’s search to knit herself back together with humour and grace. Post-show discussion.

Author Stefan Hakenberg and Joyce Parry Moore
