Screaming Lessons

Opening: December 3rd 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

On view: December 3rd - December 18th 2016

Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles presents Screaming Lessons by Caitlin Abadir-Mullally and Helena Martinez. The six week performance of Screaming Lessons was a challenge to sculpt ourselves into stronger, self-assured figures. Our goal was to grow comfortable with expressing our thoughts honestly and articulately. Each week pertains to a specific skill needed to achieve this goal. The weeks focused on the following:

Week 1: SPACE, we allow ourselves to exist and take up space in larger capacities

Week 2: AGGRESSION, we elevate ourselves to reach an equal importance in our  interactions with unwavering confidence

Week 3: PRIVATE VULNERABILITY, we feel and accept our personal thoughts and emotions

Week 4: PUBLIC VULNERABILITY, we expose ourselves to others comfortably and proudly

Week 5: ARTICULATION, we think through our personal thoughts and emotions and understand our own self-expression

Week 6: DELIVERY, we communicate our thoughts and emotions powerfully and self-assuredly

This project is the first collaborative piece between Caitlin Abadir-Mullally and Helena Martinez. The performance, that took place through September 26th, 2016 to November 6th, 2016, was documented through written forms and personal notes completed by Caitlin Mullally and Helena Martinez. The original documents and objects are on display to illustrate the process and experience of the performance, combining all of the acquired skills into one final act. The installation invites the audience to watch the growth achieved through the performance.
