“So she retreats. She explores the vast emptiness, the territory of pleasure and the realm of silence after something breaking. Like a heartbreak that builds up, only to break down again, she creates a character that breathes, rises and disappears. Through movement and sound, words and songs she negotiates between harsh realities and the soft worlds of her imagination.”
Cold Hawaii is a solo that can be thought of as an esoteric novel where fiction becomes the map to reimagine reality. It is a paradox and a myth seeking to confront the desire to be exposed and be private, to be shy and be too much, to be someone, be no one, to be wild and be serene. It is a piece full of heartbreak, disappointment and rejection.
