IAM: Of Body and Mind was inspired by the changes to our inner and outer lives as humans living through a pandemic time. Set in the human realm, Of Body and Mind explores the experiences of human individuals and societies in response to COVID-19–fear, illness, caring, isolation, heroism, graft, anxiety, love and loss. In this human realm, we are lost in a world of our own making, and ill equipped to respond to and accept the larger reality that we are part of.
IAM (pronounced ee-yam), is a COVID-19 story told in four acts through dance and light. IAM is all about perspective. Each act takes place at a sequentially larger scale of material reality: first molecular, then human, earthly, and universal.
Act 1, Dance of the Molecules, is an interpretation of the dance that human and viral molecules engage in when they meet inside the body.
