Secrets I Never Told My Mother is a multimedia production
that explores the practice of secret-keeping, and the societal
expectations and human reasoning that accompany it.
What is a secret you never told your mother?
What expectations have kept you from revealing parts of yourself to those closest to you?
Where do these expectations come from?
How does the body/society/our community react when we keep a secret? When we let it go?
When we hold onto secrets who do we think we are protecting?
Based on a number of interviews collected by choreographer Leah Wilks, Secrets I Never Told My Mother combines video design and audio documentary into one show that burrows into the heart of secrets and their implications.
