This is what it's all about.

The project is about understanding How humans react and process the concept of a Catastrophe. It is also how 3 events have shaped the mind of someone being up close to death. How the moments during different times in my life had brought the best and worst out of me after 3 totally different ways the events had been triggered.

the 3 catastrophes I happily survived are:

Earthquake mexicco 1985: triggered by a natural event

London subway bomb bomb 2005:
triggered by human intention to harm people

3 catastophe: Tsunami+ Fukushima: triggered by nature + human responsibility

The show is an experience in 3 different ways of telling the story of each catastrophe,

One as a recreation of the moment of being there today ( fukushima).

One as a poetic and metitational room which people can relax at the sund of a bomb ( London)

One as a story being narrated in a seductive way playing with models and machines. ( mexico)

This is a show on the mind have to deal with the aftereffects and backlash of surviving . How the mind had being shaped during and after the events. How to understand them logically . in a black humor way.

The show brings to society the importance of how each one of us can live an unpleasant experience but have the hidden tools in the mind to learn from each one of these events.

It brings out also how we approach comfortably with distorted reality some catastrophes as expectators, and we tolerate them as a romantic requiem, even if the reality itself is crude and raw.

My project is special because It is a mirrow of our strenght and our arrogance

The show we are presenting in Prague brings to society the importance of how each one of us can live an unpleasant experience having the opportunity to learn from them or to crash spiritually.

It brings out also how we approach comfortably with distorted reality some catastrophes as spectators, and we tolerate them as a romantic requiem, even if the reality itself is crude and raw.

This is what I need backing for.

With the money from the crowdfunding we can build one more big machine that it’s essential In our Show. We will also use an amount to pitch for more festivals in Europe.

We also need to rent a bus to bring the other machines, and props to go to Prague. and the shelter and transportation of :

1 musicians 3 actors 1 Sound architect 1 director 1 technician

We also can pay the insurance that is important for the shows being held in Prague.
