The Day Before Internment
I am afraid. I am nervous. I feel like I'm in those minutes before free-falling. It has always been scary to perform in front of an audience, all the more with the performance of a story that I devised with my partner. These feelings and thoughts can cripple and paralyze me but what I do is I focus on the reason of this performance. There is a story that needs to be told. A story of the human condition. This story is to embrace the individual that is shunned by society or even by our own self. We tend to lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of life, of ideologies, of citizenship, of values and morals, of searching for money, of the idea of what is right and what is wrong. I just want to connect and empathize; and that's what gets me past the fear.
