“Yoga Satire. Brilliant, brash, and wickedly wise. You will pee your yoga pants from laughing so hard.”
Through the Gaze of a Navel
By The Chop | Created by Anita Rochon and Emelia Symington Fedy | Performed by Emelia Symington Fedy
A 60 min Performance Yoga Class
Through the Gaze of a Navel is a performance in the form of a yoga class led by self-proclaimed pop psychology expert Emelia Symington Fedy, a woman who has consumed every new-age pop-psych medicine she could get her hands on. From swimming with cosmic dolphins to vaginal weighlifting classes, Emelia’s take is irreverent but the darkness she encounters is real. More than a mere kiss-and-tell of a life-long obsession, Through the Gaze of Navel takes the sacred journey of a spiritual quest and sets it in a hilarious context.
After premiering in Vancouver Through the Gaze… toured to Toronto (East End Culture Crawl) and Whitehorse (Yukon Arts Centre). Up next is The Belfry Theatre in Victoria BC.
“Through the Gaze of a Navel works for both the non-yoga enthusiast and its fans by creating a near perfect satirical balance, a comedic yin-yang as it were, of genuine respect and gentle derision.”
— Vancouver Presents
This show is currently touring yoga festivals, yoga studios, private events and theatre venues across North America.
We’d love to bring this yoga class to your event. Please contact Emelia for more information and pricing.
