'Rouse' is the result of an exploration around the idea of self confrontation and creativity. Phycologist Carl Jung wrote.- "Everyone carries a shadow," - An unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not recognize in itself, one's link to more primitive animal instincts, which are superseded during early childhood by the conscious mind. Jung believed that "in spite of its function as a reservoir for human darkness—or perhaps because of this—the shadow may be the seat of creativity." Any creator is in constant confrontation with his own creativity. This idea about confronting the 'shadow aspects' of oneself, the creativity, and the rouse of the unconscious mind has been the departing point for this solo work.
