It’s Like This Out There, It’s Like This In Here is an in-progress solo that has been performed and researched in Los Angeles, Lincoln, Nebraska, Portland, and soon Minneapolis and Detroit. It is a study of the interplay between destruction or self-sabotage and impulsiveness, re-directing and newness. It is a celebration of how multi-faceted, frenetic, complex and messy self-identification can be. This excerpt is a small, experimental case study and a potential addition to the work.
