Culture Lab

am a is part of Femme February generously supported by Charlotte and Sonya Wall

am a explores identity through the lens of neuroplasticity, a science that examines the brain’s capacity for change. But how do we change our brains? And if we can change, how far can we go? Using personal text, scientific writings, dance, song, and frivolity to explore personal confrontation, am a is a celebration of being human. Of daring to succeed. Of daring to fail.

A work as small and deeply personal as the title suggests…the show digs into some truly deep, honest, and vulnerable terrain.” – The Georgia Straight

am a…is not only inspiring but it’s visually exciting” – Jo Ledingham
