A love song inspired by the lands and waters known as X̱wáýx̱way (Skwxwú7mesh), Stanley Park, in Vancouver, on unceeded Coast Salish Territory. A place that once was home to many great mothers holds much magic in the creases and folds. A woman settles into the liminal space where light and dark collide. She moves through the branches, slipping in the shadows and resting in roots. Honoring the echoes of those who are no longer and listening for those coming next. Exaltation in new growth and the ripple of time. X̱wáýx̱way Swoon was created, performed and edited by Olivia C. Davies.
