“Chaos Theory” is a multi-media experience that gives a deeply personal look into the nature of human connection through the medium of music and dance.

Heartbreak is an emotion most of us have experienced, but we feel like we’re alone when we’re going through it, and that no one can understand the pain we feel. When a relationship ends, we cry, we get angry, we rack our brains as to how it all went wrong and then, over time, the pain begins to ease up and we find a way to look ahead. Chaos Theory covers that spectrum. The folks over at Raw Artists did a full interview of Josh and if you’d like to read it click here.

How did the Name Chaos Theory come about?

The name came about from the mathematical definition of Chaos theory which is “A branch of mathematics that is focused on the behavior of systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions.” I interpreted this in a way that really reflected my situation. I read on to find out that within the definition of Chaos it stated, “There are underlying patterns, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, self-organization, and reliance on programming at the initial point known as sensitive dependence on initial conditions.” When I read this, I was taken back due to how well it described my situation. It’s a “behavior of systems that are highly sensitive to an initial condition”. That says it all right there. The character in the film is caught up in this chaos due to an initial condition. And within that condition, there are underlying patterns, loops, repetitions and cycles of fear, anger, love and deep sadness.
