Performance archive 2016 Laura Pietiläinen: Michaela – The Queen of Fucking Everything

Michaela is a bright star that radiates the universe; a wounded bird and a mighty doe in one. She wants to express herself in a way that is beyond measuring. She loves glitter and everything extravagant. She wants to dream and to live it up.

Michaela – The Queen of Fucking Everything is a wild and moving show full of explosive energy. Its song and dance scenes are inspired by the music of Michael Jackson. Michaela is transforming and reveals her story of growing up, drawing strength from Michael's songs and energies.

A wounded bird an intuition
like a shell covering me, me on ice
a frozen doe a beautiful heart shattered by grief
beats deep then turns to good things
I ask for help, to arrive, joy cleansing purifying giving
dangerous then but no longer, scared, a cape and a
crown to crown a true queen of ways of truth
to a new dream, dreaming in the arms of earth, in your arms
the universe and the low lands, no bleakness here, in between
more not of pity but encased by night,
the queen of the night alone and free and
vast, quite certain not invoking opened, dripping, serum, rumi's
poem, nude female in young streams in one's own stream
drinking the nectar of life
