I look just like my sister

What if your story is the effect of someone else’s experience?
If you grow up with a sick child in the family, and want to share your story, you must also share their personal experience of growing up as a sick child. But this isn’t your story to tell.
I Look Just Like My Sister is a work in development, of which other people hold the reigns. This is the potential documentation of her maybe reconnecting with her sister, depending on what her sister wants, and possibly sharing it.
This may or may not be a story about permission, privacy, representation, fear, family, ownership, and a struggle with mental health.

Healing Circle is an interactive ceremony where I will guide actors and audience members in a collective effort to enact a spiritual ritual with the honest intent of actually healing a real person: my mother. There will also be jokes.
