Fear And All Of Me
Fear And All Of Me
Corina created FeaR & aLL OF Me to aid her through 'the healing process of working through her psychological baggage, confronting the issues and preventing them from continuing to affect [her].' the show begins with the personification of FeaR, symbolized by a pair of projected, larger-than-life, ruby-red lips and encompassing an eclectic, multi-media montage comprised of Corina's scrapbook of memories, followed by the grand entrance of her first character, ayelet, a sexually repressed Israeli-woman, who humorously recounts her first sexual experience with a man. the journey continues with Nena, the in-your-face Latina from el Barrio, who deals with spirituality in a unique fashion; Damaris, a culturally conflicted Latina raised in the South, is forced to confront her own issues of internalized racism while Bambi, a streetwise, yet endearing homeboy from South Central L.a., seeks acceptance despite his 'undeserved label'.
