Abstract

Dance can be used to open the conversation about societal and taboo topics and give its audience a different viewpoint of the issue being addressed. Addiction is a controversial subject in America, and this work is intended to begin this conversation with the audience. This dance was created to show the internal suffering one goes through when fighting to stay sober. I was inspired to do this piece by the experiences of friends and family who battle with addiction, specifically alcohol and drugs.
