A Letter to My Ex is a collage of music, movement, and film, narrating one character’s journey through the ups and downs of love.

The piece is presented through a series of letters to an ex. Each letter coupled with a song. Each moment, a reflection on the process of grieving the loss of love and learning to move on.
