Featuring an ensemble of five performers, a film projection design by Clare Schweitzer, and original music composition by Ben Juodvalkis, UNRAVELED explores the all too common experience of dependency, addiction and isolation. Originally created as a work that explored the state of anxiety and the symptoms the condition has on the mind and body, UNRAVELED has developed further to explore narratives of shame, entrapment, and recovery through the lens of the dependent mind.


In UNRAVELED, each of the five performers – Kelsey Gerber, Tayler Kinner, Jan-Matthew Sevilla, James

Washington and Erin Yen – blends movement with spoken word, drawing on a mix of personal stories of dependency and addiction, in addition to stories gathered through interviews with members of Open Recovery Center in San Francisco.
