In Kenyan Kikuyu tribal myth, there is a tree, which is its cyclical centre. Seven people gather around this tree to experience an impossible transformation. The myth says that if a man takes seven rounds, he may become a woman, and a woman becomes a man. This movement piece by Shariffa Ali and Yetunde Dada becomes more interesting when Wacici joins the group. He comes out of the bushes and joins the group.
With a hope to find the true and honest rendition of themselves, the audience feels connected in this participatory experiment. Virtual reality, dance, and music create a sacred space for the participants to explore their truthful versions.
