At the beginning of 2021 Cecilia did a text and movement research into motherhood and the taboos around it. This research is a preparation for Cecilia’s upcoming work on female body-taboos and is part of a research grant she received from the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts). Together with pregnant performer Jorijn Vriesendorp and writer Eva Maria de Wit, they delved into birth stories, postpartum psychology and how becoming a mother changes you in general. Through extensive interviews they found material that is personal yet universal.
