Rivera Sun Cook, Artistic Director, Playwright, Performer;

I collect tangible heroes
imperfect and lovable
from all times and all nations, races and creeds
with their adventure-plot-metaphors
that we, ourselves, live
to inspire all people
to lead boldly authentic, everyday lives
deeply connected to themselves
each other
and this earth.

I pair complexity to simplicity
fold panoramas into packages
challenge one voice to speak many.

I leave room for music,
and physicality.
embodying the teller
in mind, heart, and soul.

The kitchen becomes a stage
the classroom a theater
every human a storyteller.

The tales become common
discussed over tea,
simmered with dinner
written in letters
rippling. . .
into our lives.
