From Home with Love
The Dictator, The Pleaser, The Gossiper.
Should you don't identify with the above, de facto you are the Traitor.
"I feel like an alien in my home. Why am I so different to most of my compatriots" ?
"This place is, to me, a joke but apparently it is anything but a joke. We are aliens in our home. We are a minority amongst a very small minority. It will take generations to change it. By then most will be ruined. My coping therapy is to go away as often as possible. It generally helps reassure me that in the big world I am absolutely normal".
A somewhat ironic title for a contemporary performance depicting elements of ailment in one's identity. Home is usually the place you identify with; it defines you. Once you feel you can no longer assimilate with your culture, your community, your home, then your emotions and mental state is altered. Our natural way of thinking about these standard emotions, is that the mental perception of some fact, excites the mental affection called the emotion, and that this latter state of mind gives rise to bodily expression. It explores these bodily changes following one's perception leading to a loss of identity, thus triggering feelings and changes which, as they occur, become the overbearing emotions.
