This evening program will explore the intersection of art and mental health. Dr. Thomas Roske and Dr. Janos Marton will present their work, which will be followed by a presentation of Doktoress Karola and the invisible mirror, a new work by Philippe Ungar on the relationship between Dr. Jacqueline Porret-Forel and visionary artist Aloïse Corbaz. The work consists of a short film, followed by an interview between Jacqueline Porret-Forel and Philippe Ungar performed onstage by Tia Link as Jacqueline Porret-Forel and Kelly Miller as the interviewer. The project continues the conversation about the intertwining of art, life, and mental health.
Taking place at the American Folk Art Museum on Tuesday, May 9 from 6:30-9:30pm. Feel free to come for all or just my portion, which will take place from 8pm-9pm. More details here!
Just read how cool this synopsis is: Have you ever wondered if you’re living the life you’d always imagined? "The Blank Page" encaptures the journey of a woman from birth to death. She struggles with self-acceptance and lives her life in fear of not being enough which halts her artistic ability as a writer. After realizing she is living a life she doesn’t recognize, she meets someone who reminds her of the potential she has to offer the world. Zoe is the lead character whose life is followed throughout the film. There are five roles for Zoe ranging from ages 7-50.
I'm very excited to be playing one version of Zoe.
Very excited to have booked the lead in Dan Nastro's upcoming film, Convention. In his words, "A young man takes his unsuspecting girlfriend to a comic book convention. Between his ulterior motive for inviting her and how overwhelmed she is by the geek-ness, their first trip together may also be their last!"
"A short film for the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art set in 2087. Time travel is on the brink of discovery and one lonely guy volunteers as a test subject to go back in time and find the woman who changed his life. The film will be shot in a fake documentary style. The costumes and sets will be B-movie-ish for fun and humor, but the emotions will be genuine. Despite taking place in the future, with all the fantasy and technology, the root of this project is very sincere and will be handled will care and precision." Fun, right?
So excited to play Pandora in the short-film "Demons" this coming March. A reluctant mom, recently divorced, fatally hits a young girl with her car one night while driving drunk. She hides the body to avoid punishment for the crime. The outcome is not what she expects.
