My artistry uplifts the things we already know but are afraid to confront; discussing mortality, grief in all its forms, love through hatred, family, etc. My art doesn't make you lean in. Instead it makes you sit back and wait a few seconds to let it sink in.
Tragicomedy, Intellectual romance
“I love him who is of a free spirit and a free heart: thus is his head only the bowels of his heart; his heart, however, causes his down-going” ("Thus Spoke Zarathustra", Friedrich Nietzsche). The mind is the place the soul goes to escape the heart. The heart is the place the soul goes to find solace from the mind. Two people at separate ends of artistic thought navigate love, play, philosophy, and what we might call “endings” in this music drama.
Despite not being your everyday mountain hiker, nineteen year old Amanda Kneeds hears a call to The Mountains. In her path to the top, she is onslaught with what might be visions, memories, ghosts, or her subconscious mind trying to tell her something about her family, the stars, grief, and What We Don’t Know. They help or possibly halt her from making it to the top of the mountain. This mountain. For now.
Family drama, Folkloric adaptation
Adapted, but more so inspired by the German folktale “The Lorelei” or “Die Lore Lay”, Lorelei follows a Shadow-of-a-Home: a girl growing up, a mother who falls into her shadows, and a shadow of a father. It contemplates the stories we tell about our past, the safety of lies, and the illusion of a family.
