3 Catastrophes I Happily Survived

These experiences have changed my life; I made 3 different approaches, one for each catastrophe.

First catastrophe (Fukushima):
A realistic and imaginative approach in Fukushima staging the experience of what it is to be like inside the nuclear reactor at this moment. Between research and my imagination of what’s happening. Mutated animals, people cleaning, people can feel the space, the radiation by low frequency sounds.

Second catastrophe (London):
A stylized meditational moment inside the millisecond of the bomb blast inside the exploded train in London. What is it like to be inside a split second extended into 8 minutes? People can meditate with a bomb blast and expect something while not really sure what’s coming. This bomb blast made me change my mind and my goal in life.

Third catastrophe (Mexico City):
Surviving Mexico City as a child, staging it as I remember it, a model of Mexico City being struck by a washing machine, a story in a humorous way and yet really serious of how my mother helped me out of my crumbling house and how a washing machine took my grandmother's place in life.
