Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation
Join us in our Studio to meet with talented artist Thea Little!
The Recess is on Monday, June 10th 7:30 PM including hospitality, and networking.
Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation presents the RECESS Salons Series and performances, monthly, on Mondays at 7:30 pm - including hospitality, and networking: unique in the field, our salon series program connects with our Young Patrons Group, fostering a two-way dialogue between artists, supporters, and audiences.
In Honest Process, Thea Little and collaborators excavate and reinvent ideas of ego, commercialism, and narcissism toward collective ambition, vulnerability, and the wise self. Within a culture that carries the pressure of being constantly happy, productive, and successful largely according to western capitalistic values, Honest Process explores the opposing ideas of self-assured wisdom, internal success, and healing the self with embodied intuitive wisdom. By utilizing a wash of abstract gestures, vocals, and facial expressions that form a communicative internal language, Honest Process exposes a sometimes serious, sometimes playful relation to healing and all that healing can look and feel like. Within Honest Process, there is a strong sense of listening to one another, gently acknowledging and seeing the audience, being present
in the moment, being patient with time and space, as well as a healthy dose of humor, competition, and over-the-top improvisation. Honest Process acknowledges that healing is not always neat or linear and is an active and engaging journey.
