Reclaiming Emotion

By Zhen Dao

In a passionate presentation in praise of emotion, Zhen Dao offers a reframe of the traditional dichotomy between feelings and the spiritual. Zhen points to the loss of emotional vocabulary in the everyday world, and suggests that we are merely the hosts of emotions - that her purpose is to move through us to reach other people, and charge them in turn with intensity. Zhen ends the presentation with a dramatic rewriting of Hamlet’s To Be or Not To Be speech, which was written for the SACRA Theater Company.
