me: roar

V.8 - The Rachel Browne Theatre 
Who do you see when you look in the mirror? Do we ever see who we really are when we look at our selves? Where are we when we're our truest selves?
What starts as a cabaret to understand how we build our personas, morphs into a journey into finding how we return home in our bodies. A species of clay people, a forest of self-reflection, and the most ferocious stuffed shark in the world dot the map of this queer odyssey.
Who will you see when you hear me roar?

me: roar

Alembic Theatre Creations—The Rachel Browne Theatre

When I watch a dance show, I let myself get immersed into its world. I love watching the gracefulness while immersing into the music. When you intersperse storytelling with dance, there isn’t the chance to fully engage into the dance. The story here is so gripping, I would probably drop the dance segments and keep the audience rapt with the narrative.

It really made me sad (in a good way) after watching this presentation. I empathise wholly and I’m angry at the world. We need more people to roar.
