divination
I spend many mornings with my tarot cards or with the I Ching. They teach me to trust the varied and diverse processes of life : synchronicity, transformation, patience, and action.

Imago
January 2018

What happens when dreams and reality collide? A shadowed creature hides in the earth, cringes at the sight of light, plays dead, and waits. As this mysterious creature emerges into the light, she reckons with ideas of femininity, ageing, and desire. What forces compel her on her journey towards the unknown? And where will she end up?

Dance artist Nicola Bullock returns to Durham with a new one-woman show that reckons with the distance between what we are and what we believe ourselves to be. Inspired by Greek mythology, Impressionist paintings, and Golden Era movies, Imago proposes a world in which truth and illusion are inseparable.
