Dancer Kittiphon Udomrattanakulchai has literally found her muse within herself. A few months into her pregnancy, she became amazed and inspired by how her body had developed to protect the baby in her womb. That sense of wonder has turned into A Fetus’ Dream, an ongoing butoh performance at Crescent Moon Theatre.
To say that the cast consists of six instead of five performers is technically most accurate — the eight-months pregnant Kittiphon directs and leads the show with her baby inside her.
“The baby symbolises our dreams or hopes in life,” said Kittiphon. “Watching my body grow and develop to protect the baby got me thinking about how well we take care of our dreams. As we get older, with so many responsibilities in life, I wonder if the dreams that enrich our soul are still there.”
