Metro Arts and Mad Dance House present a Creative Development Showing of

THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL

By Sam Evans

An exploration of the different personalities within all of us and how we use them to survive, thrive, and have some fun along the way.

Everyone slips into different roles as we navigate the world, trying on different personalities to satisfy expectations, go after what we want, and figure out who we are. While these traits help navigate our lives and difficult situations we face, they can often become at odds with one another. Stories of the sad clown and introverted performers to name a few. How do we reconcile all the people we become?

This Time It’s Personal unpacks these ideas through movement, dance and comedy to get a better understanding of ourselves and others. Possessing an unconventional skillset like “The Robot” and “Street Dance Freestyling” Sam engages audiences to make you think while you smile.
