Learning new things can be exciting, unlearning old things can be scary. How do we unlearn to be the person we have become? We let ourselves fall and a net appears. YOU LIVE YOU LEARN favours fragility over protection, the unknown over the familiar, and invites the audience to share knowledge and experience. May we all learn something new tonight!

They say, life is a journey and a lifelong lesson.
I wonder who's teaching and what's the subject.

They say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or Caipirinha. Or tarte au citron.
But do something nice with those bloody lemons of yours.
They were given to you and to a present of life you respectfully say "thank you".

Learning something new is exciting.
Unlearning something old can be scary.
It takes us to places we're afraid to touch.
To demons we prefer not to wake.
Once they're awake, they want to be faced.

Leap, and the net will appear.

In the end I did take a leap. Faced the demons and even came to peace with them. The net appeared.
The work will continue in the future, creating a space for what sometimes seems too fragile to share.
See you in 2025...
