About The Show
We all can relate to hearing THE NEGATIVE VOICES IN OUR SUBCONSCIOUS WHISPERING: ”you’re not good enough”; “you’re ugly”; “you’re worthless”. Through one person’s eyes, we see the struggle they face and the connection they have with these voices. The story shows how on the outside we seem fine, but when we take the mask off, what do you TRULY see? As the show unravels we EXPERIENCE the conscious efforts ONE ENDURES to overcome these INNER DEMONS and WITNESS the positive TRANSFORMATION WHEN choosing the light; Whether this may be: achieving your dream job; being comfortable in your own skin or SIMPLY knowing you are worthy of being here.
YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!
The storyline for this piece of Dance Theatre is very simple, but the impact and depth of it can AND WILL connect each different kind of audience. This show WILL RESONATE to THOSE OF US WHOM suffer from mental health STRUGGLES, OR THOSE TRAPPED BY VARIOUS community STEREOTYPES, and TO THOSE ‘every day people’ who work TIRELESSLY FOR THEIR NEXT MONTH’S PAY, hating their job, and SECRETLY wishing THAT they could LEAVE IT ALL AND follow their dreams. This showcase WILL ACTUALIZE TO THE AUDIENCE that even though we have these voices WHICH bring us down, WE as humans have the choice to listen to them or we can consciously make the decision to ignore ‘the voice IN OUR MINDS’ and INSTEAD follow what the heart desires. The show uses body-paint art to portray these different emotions and struggles. AS WELL AS incorporating live acoustic music and the use of spoken word.
With All OF THE WORLD’S CURRENT TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS, I feel that this show could be SOMEONE’S SALVATION and solution. INSTILLING TO THE MASSES WHOM ARE listening to THEIR negative voices, that they have the power to choose, TO CHOOSE positivity; to choose their dreams; AND ULTIMATELY CHOOSE THEMSELVES. THIS SHOW also HAS THE POWER TO EDUCATE: THE YOUTH AT: SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES and Youth-centres. the show will give them a sense of comfort to be unique and individualized within a conformist society and at such a crucial time in their lives.
