1:1 Solo | A Walk Towards The Sun, The Moon, and the Stars
**Postponed until further notice. Updates coming soon.
A Walk Towards The Sun, The Moon, and the Stars is a solo performance designed for one individual at a time and intended as an inimitable offering, a ritual, and an inquiry into what is essential. This 1:1 solo creates an intimate, personalized and collaborative performance experience involving being lead and cared for, and a witnessing that brings forth an unfolding adaptation in real time. Together we look into a series of existential questions around humanity, and the ways we are connection/disconnected to one another. The performances weaves filmic, sonic and corporeal togetherness coaxing intimacy and self- realization through embodied reflection.
