The title of Olivia Mia Orozco’s Toolbox refers to the idea of an emotional toolkit, evaluating how equipped with self-awareness, clarity, empathy, patience and the capacity to heal, we are or are not when confronted with life’s traumas. In a melding of dance and movement performance with film, sound and environmental installation, Orozco and collaborators Julienne Mackey and Daniel Diaz create a sensorial expression of what building such a toolbox can feel like, from contemplation to catharsis, brutal honesty, and ultimate liberation.
