MANIFESTO FOR STORIES OF HUMAN POSSIBILITY

We are surrounded by stories of humanity unconscious.
Endless stories fixated on humanities’ demise and folly,
Characters seemingly unable to evolve, stuck in their own trappings.

I am a theatre artist offering visions of human awakening.
Stories that ask: what can we become?
I put characters in a chrysalis and we watch them transform.

My performances are fantasias,
A collage of song, dance, poetry, ritual and visual wonder.
The spectacle is the self, emerging.

I employ a contemplative creative process.
A coalescence of meditation, dream work, and spiritual practice.
My muses?
the creative unconscious,
the body, the voice, the mind,
the living Earth,
the sacred feminine.

I see performance as a guide into the present moment,
A visceral experience of our interconnection,
A remembrance that transformation is possible.
