This week Oriya & Karri bring you a brand new show: Integration Junkies: The Art of Accepting and Light Shadow Dancing
Oriya and Karri reunite for their first live show in a little while! Oriya returns from a two-week trip to Israel, on a trip with the experience of home in mind.
The push for exploration, the need to feel at home with oneself, and the desire to be the “Stranger in a Strange Land” are all examined within this context of journey.
Oriya believes that self-love forms a true home, and that any true feeling of safety must come from within oneself. Home as an internal concept is an intriguing development, as a shared cultural feeling of “not being at home” grows due to societal entropy.
Oriya also discusses the history of his family following the Holocaust, and precisely how important the idea of Home felt after such a horrific event. The loss of home can be equated to a loss of innocence, and even a loss of ourselves.
The perils of navigating guilt and shame, and the human body as a home all its own are discussed as well!
