Mumure de Femme / Woman's Whisper
Lua Shayenne and Company
Murmure de femme | Woman’s Whisper is an ode to femininity. Performed by Miranda Liverpool and Lua Shayenne.
“Born to bear the weight of ceaseless adversities / I am she / Stalled in cyclic time / I remain – a woman / Rest your back against mine / Learn the rhythm of my breath / Listen carefully to every pulse in my veins / Memorize the cadence of my heart / In the flux of tempo and beats / We rise as one soul” – Lua Shayenne
