Keeping up with the daily news cycle can sometimes be stressful.
We brace ourselves for partisan political strife, new revelations of abuse or harassment, or events of public mass violence.

He told KALW’s Jen Chien about the process of making the show, which is a combination of dance, music, theater and imagery.
