This is a trilogy of vids reclaiming BSG's mythology, theology and mysticism and the interconnected women at the center of it all.  These vids together attempt to present the Opera House from various angles and to capture what it meant to and for different women. Post-finale and its profane Opera House, they also collectively present a reconceptualization of the Opera House as the intersection between life and death and between human and Cylon, representing hybridity in infinite variations: intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical. The third vid, especially, is based on edits made by Battlestar Redactica, a fan-edited alternate 4.5 by [livejournal.com profile] cvm_productions. See here for a short explanation of edits relevant to and relied on by the vid and here for a textual explanation of all this, outlined by [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria, my compatriot in all this Opera House reclaiming.

I. Convergence: Cathedrals [D’Anna, Laura, Caprica]
seeking truth.

There is a feeling that you should just go home, and spend a lifetime finding out just where that is

II. War: Child You’re the Revolution [Athena, Hera]

hybridity’s a war.

Mother tell me, is there love on my tongue? Mother tell me, cause I’m the revolution.

You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace, you will lead them all to their end.
