A word from Lucile Frak Graciano :
My goal has always been to travel and learn. I want to understand other people and find the beauty in our differences, and the ways that we can all work together.
The Brexit, the Trump election, the rise of the National Front in France, the horrific rise to power of ISIS: I have been shocked and saddened to witness the rise of hate and fear. It is sad to see people in power use these emotions to benefit themselves rather than working to heal a crisis.
After traveling to places such as Russia, Lebanon, Israel, Morocco, Norway; being raised in France and living in the US for 10 years, I have been inspired and sometimes appalled, by the people I have met and the artwork I have been able to create with them. The cast of Fraking Trip comes from everywhere, and instead of dividing us, our differences are our greatest strength.
No matter where people live I can assure you everyone want the same things : Love, stability and health.
And that's what Fraking Trip is about.
On the first track of the show, I have gathered samples of people saying "I love you, I hate you " from 30 different countries. All from people I have connected with throughout my years of traveling and dancing, from family and loved ones.
It was quite unbelievable how similar they can sound. Throughout the piece I tried to portrait the importance of self love. Self love as in loving and respecting the human that you are, to then be able to respect other humans based on that same basic criteria : Humanity.
I wanted this show to be raw, accessible and genuine.
Getting a platform for my voice to be louder was the only motivation behind winning NYs Got Talent.
I couldn't be more grateful for all the friends and talented humans who supported Fraking Trip and allowed me to make it come true on such short notice.
