Through her research Hara will examine how maternity affects performing, physically and psychologically, and what is the relation with art histories.
‘After becoming a mother, I wanted to dive deeply into the question of how different I am as a performer. What has changed with my new identity while performing. Am I different? Also, what is the correlation with art history. How an artist interprets/depicts the body of pre and post motherhood.’
