P: Punctual. I show up on time for everything and sometimes I'm embarrassed by being early or on time for everything because… other people show up late,
I feel like they are all cooler than me! BECAUSE THEY CAN SHOW UP LATE but I’m always on time “Okay Here I am!!”
H: Hyper Active. I'm energetic all the time. (When I was a little kid) If I was at the table and too active, they told me to run around the house like 5 times. And I was like run, run, run, run, run and come back.
And that is also about my schedule - I’m just hyper active person.
I: Imagination overload. I have too many ideas any given conversation. Any given conversation, I could like sit in and discuss, and create 10 theatre shows even for 5 minutes. Like “O my Gosh – I have this and this and this! What about this and this?” Too much and Too much.... And I feel like it is overload – which is really good sometimes, but actually mostly it’s bad, I think..
L: Love filled. I care about people a lot. I am always curious (and trying to) listen to them. I just want to show love and show compassion.
Sometimes I just want to quit art (so that) I could cook for people and hang out with people – just showing love in that way.
The project now I'm working on
creating an immersive performance for the Moon in 2175. It won’t be on the moon, it will be on earth.
My company got hired to create a 4-hour immersive performance, it’s really long!
So, soon as you stepped through the doors, you are in the moon in 2175. And there will be also stories that you can discover, and performances.
It is also a collaboration with a bunch of schools, all about imagination. One of the things that I’m thinking about is how can we use imagining the future as a way to unlock conversations about what’s happening right now. I'm not interested in creating Utopian/Dystopian Future - I'm interested in using the future as an imaginative frame to tell stories that we couldn’t tell otherwise.
If this happens to me, I would consider myself famous enough..
When someone not in the USA contacts me about doing a project outside of US. Specifically like, “Hey Phil, I saw you (on) XYZ and your project ABC. I want you to come here and lead something with us.”
And they have to pay for my ticket and I make money with whole endeavor.
When I am found by other people instead of me reaching out to people.
