UTPALA 

To move. To open. To blossom. To burst forth. 

UTPALA (Sanskrit). A word for lotus - the white water rose in India, the blue lotus in ancient Egypt.  This flower broods in deep dark, the underbelly, the muck and mud. With patience, perseverance, dedication and might, at some unforeseen moment, it bursts above the familiar into another realm, space, openness. Engaging fully with life and yet unaltered by passing events.

This show explores the feeling of surrendering to the full experience of life.

As humans we are always seeking a freer, fuller, more expanded version of ourselves.

And life is always seeking its fuller expression through us.

Sometimes we move, open, bend, twist, puncture, rise, push, pull, sway, exult with a softer, feminine touch. Other times we move with a more pointed, directed effort, in sharp strokes of colour.

When we walk with flesh transparent, vulnerable, we can also feel the quietest parts of life pass through us, in the breath, the pulse, the pull, in the finest of delicate lines. Flowing like water, rising like trees, bending like roots, or standing firm like rigid metal, we can feel strong and defenceless at the same time.

We dare to look fear in the eye, and love.

Open to the mysterious, the irrevocable, the sacred.

Allow ourselves to unravel, with a soft prayer on our lips - for more.

These are lessons we can’t be told.

They can only be experienced through the heart.

When shall I depart to make my home

In a cave or empty shrine or under a spreading tree

With, in my heart, a free, unfettered heart,

Which never turns a backwards glance.

- Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva
