Statement from Una: My art is my comeback to a world where marginalized bodies and experiences get silenced; a world where the only option is to write myself into my own parts. I tell stories with my whole body in meaningful, colorful ways that make the movement irresistible as I combine the many art forms I love: theater, burlesque, dance, stand-up, storytelling of every kind. Everything I do and create is rooted in how I view the world- and how the world views and responds to me. Through fully embodied performance, I create and explore my own reality -- which celebrates my wholeness along with my brokenness. Art is how I survive, how I breathe, how I share love. It’s how I communicate, how I connect with others, how I create opportunities for as many stories to be shared as possible -- especially those we don’t usually get to hear and value.
