Om Shanti

It would all become meaningless if everything was yours. The clothes you wear, the food you eat, the love you keep. Sometimes you have to starve to appreciate the taste of life, loose someone you want so much because you knew it was the right thing to let them fulfill individual destiny. Sure it hurts to cry, but sometimes the pain is worth a try to remind you that resilience is an endeavor of the human spirit. Peace only comes in silence, whether in the markings of a smile or the tracing of a lovers lips. This is it - your chance to live life alive.

The Land of **** (a fable)

I am going to see this, and I recommend you do too!

A fable of love, lust and heartbreak in the modern age.

Using the social perceptions of a simple word – fuck – and its transformation throughout recent history from a highly censored word to its present expressive acceptance, this conceptual dance work aspires to define a period in evolution that is of the immediate – the here and now – through a theatrical and exploratory landscape.

"To ‘fuck’ is humanity at its best and at most base, at its highest form of intimacy and lowest. It is a word and an action that divides the generations, divides the sexes, divides the moral compass. At the same time, of course, it creates."
- D.A. Hoskins
