Right now, someone, somewhere feels exactly like you do. Does it help to know that another is experiencing the same situation? How do people from different places, backgrounds and times deal with the same psychological scenarios? Can we compare memories or ideas of the future? Can we portray these subjects in an objective manner when differences in context can evoke the illusion of being the only one?
The Collective ‘Yila and Friends’ will present this idea in a music and arts performance.
Using conceptual music, sonic art, video, projection, animation, written word, storytelling and poetry it will put social, physical & emotional concepts in perspective.
This show is a constant Work in Progress, the audience is part of it and is encouraged to give their feedback.
