This Junction

I encountered life on those streets as an outsider. As I walked, I was sensitive to both the overwhelming visceral experience and the theft of my personal agency. I began to yield to the streets, and they unfolded for me. It became more difficult to distinguish the ugly from the beautiful, my reality from theirs. This is about fighting for space and finding my place amongst the native inhabitants of this urban chaos.

Mayuri Boonham, my mentor, for being patient, honest and encouraging.
Yachao Zhu, for guiding me through contemporary movement.
Ben Pearson, for composing the sound score.
The Bhavan, for generously supporting me with rehearsal space.
