Process memoir 5: The indigo kid

After a 3 month isolated residency choreographic director Johnnie Cruise Mercer blends three years of solo material (The indigo kid) to create and bring to life the fifth process memoir. 

I am ready.  

The time has come for me to begin, to conjure an active solo journey- an origin story inspired by multiple origin stories. Artifacts from the past haunt my subconscious, and the epic-memories that hold my foundation act as the impetus for a play on something greater, a larger movement. This process memoir is idiomatic. It’s a spiritual remembering. It feels like a halfway point for something required. And so, I prepare to be taken. In self-reflection, I prepare to embody my true faith, an epic voice.  I embrace my inner indigo child.
