The idea for this performance piece came into being almost two years ago, though in truth, I have been writing it for years.
As I move forward with making it a reality this year, I felt a yearning to capture the process and share it. It was a way to remind myself (yet again) that this, as are all things in life, a process. We don’t just show up on opening night.
It was also important to share this process because the heart of the piece is women and abuse.
Writing has always been my portal – to my thoughts, my longings, my healing. And so as I step forward this year with bringing “The Skins I’ve Worn” to life, I felt the call to begin a diary, not just to capture the creative process, but also to explore my own healing.
As I step out, I have no idea what this will ultimately look like or what will come of it all. All I can do is trust.
