Grounded in my heritage, Juicer resonates across diverse human experiences, offering a narrative that is both deeply personal and widely relatable. The performance revolves around a handcrafted white clay bowl. Its tapering opening and imprinted fingerprints serve as tangible moments of memory and history, symbolizing the constraints and enduring marks of societal influences. A lone orange within this vessel signifies vitality and a connection to land, embodying the richness of my roots. The attempt to juice the orange, while seemingly straightforward, unravels into an endeavor marked by absurdity and difficulty, highlighting the unpredictable nature of extracting essence amidst adversity. The piece invites the audience to reflect on the struggles inherent in creating something from nothing, and the absurdity embedded within these struggles, through life and adversity.
