No Place Like
As they come of age, a group of young women look forward and backward to contemplate their place in the world. Memory, family, place, and identity intertwine as they struggle to define home and then challenge those very definitions. What is home? What do we risk by not having it?
Told through real-life memories and anecdotes, No Place Like explores the kaleidoscopic landscape of forgotten homes, broken promises, and new beginnings – where the personal is recognized as the universal, confessed secrets are communal affirmation of shared fears, and we see ourselves reflected and celebrated in each other.
This is the most personal piece Kaleid has ever created. The creation process is the most difficult we have ever faced, but also one of the most rewarding.
CONTENT WARNING: Since this piece is told through personal stories, it contains material that may be stressful to for some to hear, including descriptions of inappropriate sexual contact, disordered eating, and self-harm.
