My desire to explore my understanding of humanity’s journey has forced me to re-evaluate our story beginning in the Garden of Eden. I have started from my personal vantage point, as a Jew who is on a spiritual journey, mirroring my life story with the past seven years I have spent living in Frome,

I hope to show that this dark path that we are on, living in a state of separation, disconnected from each other and from our Mother Earth, is a circular journey and that we are on our way home. Traveling on this bumpy ride through the shadow of our psyche, I became aware of the imbalance that we have chosen to explore as we have leaned into the dominant masculine aspects of ourselves and our culture. This pilgrimage to rediscover the divine feminine, that resides within us all, has shown me that this can only be done by facing our Minotaur, the beast within, and in doing so, we can begin to gain to a broader view of our universe. This may encourage us to reconnect to a way of life that is beyond judgement and beyond fear; a return to love.

My new CD, Beauty in the Beast – A Musical Journey into the Labyrinth, is now available.

‘a profoundly moving experience’                                                       ‘fundamentally inspiring’ ‘quite unique!’

Return to the Golden City was written in 2014 and produced as an online lockdown reading in 2020.

Set almost entirely in the refectory of a public centre in Israel, two couples meet – one Israeli, one Palestinian – at a Reconciliation Conference. Each couple has one willing participant and one conflicted participant. Through the process of ‘Sulha’ (meaning reconciliation), peace may be attained by the offering and accepting of three cups of coffee.

In 2020, when Vicki attended a Conflict Transformation Summit during the Covid lockdowns, an open invitation was offered to all participants. She was able to present her play, with the new online platform available, as an impromptu reading with four willing participants from around the world, Encouraged by those who saw it, Vicki spent the rest of the year filming this production as an online lockdown reading and creating an accompanying reconciliation workshop.

Vicki originally wrote the play after deciding to join the Frome Friends of Palestine to find her own reconciliation as a Jew. Throughout the summer of 2014 a whole sequence of events brought about the inspiration for this play which began as she awoke with scenes playing out in her mind. The next ten days Vicki sat and wrote the play as a continuous stream of consciousness. She soon realised that a song, ‘Sulha’ she had written ten years previously would also become the structure for this play.

‘Weaving together melodic Joni Mitchell-style folk, pop and jazz Sutura’s music has an ethereal beauty. Vicki not only writes the songs but gives the music an unworldly nature with her Celtic Harp and additional solos on saxophone and flute.’
