Every time I do the show, I like to share a bit about what this show has always meant for me:

Making a Framework

Suddenly, things that just felt like setbacks or sidetracks now had imperative meaning.

Reframing My Narrative

14206130_10154568989239658_5430250189317922918_oWhatever unfortunate events that had taken place up until this point, was no matter now. Just as my fear, pain and uncertainty had been instantly transformed on my canvas through my paintbrush, the transformative art of theatre was turning my fragmented, detoured life, the vortex of trauma, into a linear narrative.  Through my artistic expression, I was creating a straight line out of fragments.   My story had a beginning, a middle, an end, a message, a meaning, a mark on this world – which is all I ever really wanted.

The world was going to hear about it now, and I was so grateful.

And that was the title of my show.

Gutless & Grateful.
