Pause [Short Film]

by | Dec 8, 2022

“Pause” is a short film featuring the poem “Pause” that I wrote and contributed to “The Circus of Grief and Joy,” a live event held at the historic Aria Theater in downtown Minneapolis in May, 2022.

The show featured over a dozen dynamic live circus acts embodying the range of human emotion, interwoven with readings by Dr. Sherry Walling, drawing the sold-out audience into a deep shared experience of witnessing the compelling fullness of the human experience.

The event was envisioned and directed by Dr. Sherry Walling and Lynn Lunny, for the launch of Sherry’s latest book, “Touching Two Worlds,” a brilliant guide to finding hope in the landscape of loss.

“Pause” illustrates how my work can invite presence at the opening of a gathering or event, bring an audience into stillness and reflection, and set a collective intention for a shared group experience.

“Amber is a powerful collaborator and asset to creative projects.”

Her curious nature, profound questions, and honest reflections support the development of self-awareness and invite connection to the world around us. With Amber’s counsel, I see more facets and dimensions of my work, and can better align the depth, integrity, and potency of the message I’m trying to share. She is a masterful teacher and creative guide.

I can help bring connection, understanding and empathy to your project or cause.

As a spoken word poet and performer, film writer, and conservation program/grant writer I have an immense range of communication capacity to present compelling and emotional stories with sensitive attunement to audience and culture.
