Meet Kiki Abba, actor in Grief Dialogues: The Play! It runs Tuesdays & Wednesdays starting tomorrow - June 19, 20, 26, & 27 at 18th & Union: an arts space!
How did you originally get involved with The Grief Dialogues?
I participated in the first Grief Dialogues in the summer of 2016 and am excited to be back working on the project.
What is your favorite part you're getting to play this time?
It's my first time doing these pieces and I'm really looking forward to performing The Number. The language just rolls off the tongue and it's a beautiful, compelling story of two siblings grappling with their dying grandmother and the family's history that might die along with her.
How would you personally define grief?
To me, grief is that deep, lasting sadness that you feel when you experience a loss. Some days it feels strong and other days it has the lightest touch, but it's always there--settled in your bones and humming in the back of your mind.
What's your favorite comfort food?
Favorite comfort food is definitely ice cream. I learned early and expertly that food is a way to deal with emotions.
