Ella Mesma Company

Exploring identity, heritage, imposter syndrome and privilege, Ella confesses why and how she doesn’t fit with a goal to transcend all of her mind chatter and be her best self.

Inspired by the four stages of transformation in the lifecycle of the butterfly, this piece will use text, song and movement to explore identity, heritage, imposter syndrome and privilege.

A composition created with live music using dance, meditation and aerial silks.
