BIG SHOW-currently exploring Theater-theater of living-theater of family, laughter, joy, failure, grief,—losing the lines/losing the script of how to be

 

exploring stories that are told and untold in me and my collaborators-of desire, hunger, shame, conditioning, dismissed loss-

 

I am studying the color red and redheads, bacteria and fungi, eyes and the eye of the storm, diagnosis’s helpful and unhelpful, capitalism and urgency, ancestry and rituals of forgiveness, the ocean as a place of true belonging 

 

and always-motherhood.
