The following are lyrics from a segment in Seed Awakening called "THE RECLAIMING" written by Marlies Yearby.

(Choral instruction) DISEMPOWER ITS HOLD LET GO! NO MORE!!!!

(Voice 1/She moves into control builds to her own rhythm. She speaks to Money Bags and to the Mad Scientists)

MY BODY IS NOT YOUR COMMODITY YOU WILL NOT OWN MY STROLL

MY BODY IS NOT YOUR COMMODITY
I OWN MY BREATH MY JOY MY LAUGHTER

NO SWITCH TO PRESS
NO HOLDING ME IN CHECK

MY BODY IS NOT YOUR COMMODITY

(Chorus continues through her claiming with sounds of approval of accent and release, any and all repeats stream through)
I NEED TO BE FREED FROM THE INSIDE
I NEED TO BE FREED FROM THE INSIDE

MY BODY IS NOT YOUR COMMODITY
YOU WILL NOT REMAKE MY INSIDES
DECONSTRUCT AND RECONSTRUCT MY FUNCTIONING

'Real Food,' Investigations to Seed Awakening:

"Scientists made plants grow faster
animals should have flourished
they struggled to survive
the plants turned to junk food
animals had plenty to eat
they were starving
starving
starving."

​Through research, Marlies seeks to answer questions such as:

  • What is the impact of engineered and processed food on the body?

  • Is the addiction to speed creating issues in nutrition, growth, and development? 

  • Does the body adapt by creating disease to manage the impact of engineered foods?

  • Are these created foods damaging the ecosystem?

  • Is nature aggressively responding and adapting to control these man made creations?

  • Are we in crisis driven by the commercial creation of food?

  • Is the residue of technology as food a device to hinder the freedom of communities cultivated for speed?

  • Have we gone too far?

 

Seed Awakening On The Eve of Blue, written by Marlies Yearby, explores these questions through a multimedia performing space where music, technology, science, voice, and living theater process these examinations through our interactions with food.
