A dance theater performance art piece journeys through trauma and the path to healing. It questions how we build tools to help ourselves. How does energy transmute? How do we handle life when it feels too much? Is meditation the next step to self-discovery? This piece poses many questions and shares non verbal stories, sound, film, a staged installation, dance and acting as a mode of new storytelling.

“Toolbox lived up to its name with its combination of dance with multiple elements to create a soothing piece of performance art.” -Lara J. Altunian LA Dance Chronicle”
“As the performance moved on, and I began to understand the story that was being told, I began to feel liberated, and no longer felt as if I was prying where I shouldn’t be, but rather that I was witnessing a wonderful transformation.”- Johnny Otto Left Bank Magazine
