Entre la Risa y el Llanto - Between Laughing and Crying

We all feel the need to cry or laugh. Alone, in the presence of others or often in a collective way we express our fear, anger, sadness, elation or complete joy through crying, an expressive trait that recognizes human beings particularly, or through laughing, an expression we share with many representatives of the animal kingdom. In laughing and crying there is an incredible depth and breadth of emotion I am interested in exploring and interpreting along with the viewing audience, who bring their own sorrows and lived lives to the process.
