The night before performer and bodyworker Lindsay Abromaitis-Smith was diagnosed with ALS, she dreamed of a goddess made entirely of flowers and plants who told her she had to learn to physically manifest differently. BLOOM. SHE IS DESCENDING is an evolving document of her changing body, which she finds increasingly aligned with the micro-movements and slow, rooted unfurling of life in the plant world.
BLOOM began as a one-woman show NYC in September 2013. In the year following its debut, BLOOM evolved into a multi-media ensemble performance incorporating dance, puppetry, and an immersive sonic environment which premiered at 5 Myles Gallery in Brooklyn in December, 2014.
