We will be back after the summer break with stories of EMERGENCY – tales of times you had to either think fast or run fast.
Conflict is the blood of compelling stories, that’s why we are going to the roots. Family feuds, family frolic; Sunday dinners, after-Christmas divorces, springtime weddings; births and deaths; heritage and inheritance; skeletons in closets, treasures in the attic; families we get, we choose, we leave, we love.
Tales of you against the world.
Culture clashes, neighbor bashes; teen anarchy, work hierarchy, unaccepted anatomy, unintended blasphemy; intuition vs. intellect; inner and outer worlds; times of explosive conflict that left you gayer and grayer.
WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE: Prepare a 5-minute story when your way of doing & thinking clashed with the world.
"I could have avoided you, but somehow I knew you were a collision worth having.
The miraculous birth of a baby or a book; falling in love … again; dancing when no one is watching; the marvel of man’s inventions, descensions and provocations; the majesty of mountains and mothers, the reverence of little insects and little lies; the moment were you forgot to breathe because you were in awe or awfully confused.
We will be sharing those moments when we f*cked up, made the wrong decisions and went from very high to very low, very "in“ to very "out“, from hero to zero - in a heartbeat. We'll laugh and we'll cry about failing and in the end, share the wisdom learned.
Noisy neighbors that keep you up, greedy landlords that move you out, demos where you lose your voice, street fairs where you lose your wallet, urban days of dop poop and dark alleys, city lights of bright boulevards and cultural heavens, subways to hell, enlightening talks with taxi drivers, lonesome souls on crowded sidewalks, falling in love or hate with a city. A destination for dreams and disappointments.
