Drowning….A Sensoria Story
The Sensoria production intends to activate the audience’s senses. Meaning where thought and feeling live together, Sensoria is an artistic experience created by Dr. Renaissance in 2018. Sensoria productions first intend to activate the audience’s sense of hearing and sight and sometimes even taste, and simultaneously intend to activate an individual’s deeper senses…the sense of self (awareness/worth), self of others (empathy), and the sense of peace, never to be confused with quiet.
This Sensoria Story settles in on grief…is it a beautiful reminder that love once and still exists? Or a painful companion that leads to the depths of isolation? Inspired by real events, “Drowning…A Sensoria Story,” explores the intersection of love and loss. Join this collective of artists for a multi-sensory experience blending dance, acting, comedy, spoken word, live music, and live painting to connect the audiences’ experiences with the hope that grief becomes something we live with and not run from.
