I Will Still Be Here
I Will Still Be Here is a solo performance that sits at intersection of inherited family and inherited Earth. It addresses inevitabilities of extinction, and how they conflict with survivalist fantasies and the importance of geneology for my family growing up in America. Using autobiographical materials, movement and child-like story telling through projection and song, the work tries to locate my own inheritance and where it sits in my body. Drawing on pop references from the Lion King to Eric Clapton's songs about fatherhood and the world, The work tangles the relationship I have with Father, Mother Earth, ancestry, and my own certainty of both climate change and my ability to survive the inevitable apocalypse.
