This is a continuation of a long songwork session with Eda (see: singing a song for the first timefour songs, four directions).

Director’s hint:

Now the stool becomes a time machine. Switching between the songs and directions you will also switch between associations. A short travel through life of a humen being. Or more specificly perhaps – life of a woman.
We will name the associations in advance. Start clockwise, so it builds sort of a linear narration. Later you can swop freely so a different story can emerge out of the combination. The switch must result in an immidiate change.

I like that in this video Ben, as videographer, follows the action and stays close. That allows to identify more with the situation.
