MiMoDa Studio Theater | 10 minutes
Every decision you’ve ever made brings you to this current moment in time. When confronted by situations that reveal who you are, you cannot hide from yourself. You exist in an infinite number of alternate realities; in other spaces and times, you exist with choices explored differently. A slightly alternate you. SONGBIRD is experienced through a twelve part chorus and six dancers: six individual branches of “you.”
‘I exist,’ In thousands of agonies– I exist.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (1880)
