Heartbreak is a universal experience that affects us all at some point in our lives. It could be romantic loss or even the loss of a loved one. It might even be a disappointment in our personal or professional lives, either way heartbreak can leave us feeling lost, alone, and overwhelmed. The ways in which we choose to respond to said heartbreak however can ultimately change the course of our lives. What was that moment for you? That loss that changed your perspective and altered your decisions and ultimately the rest of your life? Ria Boss’ project aimed at investigating this topic through a series of interviews and round table discussions that will then be developed into an album and documentary entitled “Heartbreak Hotel”. With this project she aimed at creating awareness around creating more compassionate communities. The project was also accompanied by a live performance of the same title.
