WHY EXPLORE THE JOURNEY OF A BREAKDOWN?
In my experience, a true Breakdown ultimately gives us access to transforming our lives. It is a moment where we have the opportunity to give up “the old way” we do things and adopt new and more powerful ways to live our lives. Where we say “enough is enough” and choose to stop being what we hate and start doing what we love.
Ultimately we resist having a Breakdown – we resist expressing our true feelings. We put on “the good face” and just try to get through it all. My project is ultimately an invitation and an invocation to say YES to whatever you have been resisting. I intentionally wanted to create the most provocative experience WITHOUT WORDS through images and music so the viewer can have the opportunity to see themselves in the work – and perhaps FEEL what they have been repressing.
Instead of settling for the small reprieve of a good cry – a good breakdown could transform your life.
WHAT IS IN THE SHOW?
The show will be a visual and audio journey through four archetypal characters to represent YOU on the journey through a Breakdown. Each of the four characters will have 6 large format photos printed that will chronicle the journey through three stages Breakdown: ‘the inauthentic self’, ‘the breakdown’ and ‘the nothing’.
Four actors, Brittany Ishibashi, Neil Patil, Kelsey Crane and Michael Medico graciously donated their talent and time to this project. I am so lucky to know such amazing people who support my vision and creation.
Cheers, Ciao and Aloha,
