Welcome to Planet Bubble!
What is Planet bubble, you ask? This was what my daughter, Althea the artist, wanted to name our venue- a place for creativity to “bubble out” and be released. She felt the frustration and inner pains from not being able to create- an innate desire in everyone. If we do not, we hold places of birthing deep inside, as we catatonically keep breathing through life.
The calling of the artist is powerful and intricate. Inside, a war can rage of deep insecurities, yet the passion to create wrestles down the beast within. It takes all that a person is- their strength, courage and faith to press through to a finished product- of not only the piece of art but the human becoming the art. It can be grueling but the most exhilarating way to live. It is living, fully alive and facing fears- facing them with full frontal, walking forward, with sword drawn, eyes wide open, determined face- not looking back.
Now that’s popping bubbles!
The Repertoire of the Play “Yaacov’s Ladder”
When we were in Israel, I had a vision of ancient sounds coming out of the ground since the days of Abraham. This play is about how these ancient sounds have come from the throne of God and onto the earth as a type of dialogue with man. He spoke the universe into existence and still speaks to us, His love pouring into and creating for His purposes. Instead of this play being driven by action on stage, the sound creates a place for what is inside the heart of the artisan to burst forth and reveal God’s heart to man.
