Abstract/Artist's Statement

Inspired by the history of the Berlin Wall, I’m Scared of the Colors [or At Least we Tried], is a collaborative theater project about the creative process, memory, history and love. My passions of working with people are always reflected in my art. I like to make pieces about communication and division, pieces about the relationships between people and how that is affected by modern societal constructions. In both my artistic work and my social work I hope to subvert normative expectations, while also challenging the boundaries of theater as an institution and as a genre. Through exploring and transforming space I address the personal in the political. I aim for my theater to be alienating so it can be self-aware. I hope to build community by creating spaces where people can express their opinions, not only on stage but also as spectators. I want to find pleasure in the work. I want to continue to ask questions about our past, present and future.
