So Much More (Demo) 3:380:00 / 3:38
Whatever Happens was an experimental exploration about the universal pursuit of purpose. Weaving a story through the non-linear, disjointed lives of couples, friends, and siblings, the piece ebbs and flows with an ever-changing ensemble of 20-somethings grappling with a wealth of struggles and curiosities. They find themselves looking for the path to adulthood, to happiness, to success, to love, only to lose themselves too often along the way. Whatever Happens walks the tightrope between a journey of self-love and an existential breakdown.
