Deconstructing VENUS… a moving female portrait revels in the architectural grace of the feminine form and all of its flowering beauty, questioning “Is beauty for the sake of beauty enough?”

“I love women and the way that the female body moves; especially within a social construct where they are constantly being objectified, such as an environment like the proscenium stage. Throughout history, flowers have been used as symbols to define the female body, femininity, and fertility. But sometimes a flower is just a flower. Sometimes a beautiful thing is just a beautiful thing; until it isn’t. The types of moments I like to see on stage are romantic, personal, and socially complex. That being said, if all that an audience takes away –  is a moment of beauty – then I am happy.”
-Kyle Georgina Marsh
