I believe the actor has the potential to become an open channel for a creative life force, promoting love and growth in others by promoting love and growth within themselves. As performers, mind and body are our tools, morals are our makeup, and our currency is the moment.
In an age that heralds fast communication, but promotes short attention spans, the question is raised of whether technological advances bring us closer together or further apart. One school of belief is that by staring at a screen, we miss too much of the beauty that is right in front of us. Another is, instead, we are able to see beauty across the globe. Either way, the search for truth cannot be postponed; it must be faced on the spot. In performance, audience and artist meet, and together we exercise our ability to be present.
Through writing and performance, I seek to provoke contemporary assumptions of space, time and sexuality. I aim to promote the shift in consciousness we are currently experiencing. In addition to altering our relationship to the present moment, technological advances transform our relationships with ourselves. The media exposes us to society’s elevated preconceptions of what “beauty” is. Within this paradox lies the heart of the matter. Let us learn to take "objectification"- where bodies are seen as a "consumerist good" or "commodity" that sells, and turn it into “subject-ification" , where we relate to the essential being of an individual, as they perceive it to be. Not what appears on the surface.
