"I am attracted to a performance which tackles the extremes of human behavior and Celebration is such a project. Families like societies are often built on lies, secrets and half truths. That these falsehoods are buried into the DNA of the group is reflected in the face of the family or culture. It is a strained one. It is a mask of pretense. And the behavior of a group living under such a pact of silence reflects this unease. It is Agressive. Diseased. Wild. Celebration portrays the tremendous strength and fearlessness of the individual action of overcoming this code of silence; the beauty in the courage to shine a light on the truth of our lives both personally and in our cultures."
