Bad Feelings Presents: The Part of Me That is Broken
Bad Feelings is a storytelling show meant to give opportunity for performers to explore those stories that we don't tell. It is a place to expose the moldy part of our emotional fridge that we hide from guests when we typically perform. Performed in a discussion format, Bad Feelings becomes a safe space to look into the root cause of the mold and see if it's okay. And if it isn't, we're human and we mold easily. These are the stories that make us feel small. These are the stories that when we look back and attempt to recreate the events, we think: that can't have been me who was playing the part of me back then - that person is unrecognizable. Bad Feelings is a show that makes you want to talk to people because if you are alone with your thoughts they might lead you somewhere you weren't ready for. Bad Feelings is a show that makes you want to be alone because you can't imagine a world in which talking to others turns out well.
Bad Feelings is the turkey vulture of storytelling shows - picking apart those dead carcasses that we've locked in our memory-closets until the action of picking at them gives them life again - makes them dance under our prodding beak.
