Emotatudes are a new way of looking at our feelings. So often we use adjectives to ‘describe’ how we feel. That is valuable, but can lead to misunderstandings when world perspectives are different. Emotatudes are nouns that show us physical proof of the complicated emotions we feel. Getting the bejeebers scared out of you paints a picture of what is happening inside of you when you are frightened. Having a kanipshun tells us more about our inner life than just ‘being angry.’ Having ‘a case of the blues’ explains more than just ‘being sad.’ What do these nouns look like, feel like or sound like? The answer to that question will help us unlock the passion of our inner world’s in living color with sound and movement.
