Flow, Swim, Float (A solo performance) - Being an avid traveler and experiences as an immigrant in United States pose me with forever evolving question of belonging and identity. As an artist, I am drawn towards stories and characters who struggle to claim a unique identity for themselves in this ever-changing complex world.

In solo performance ‘Flow, Swim, Float’, Leher, a vibrant and energetic content creator invites you to be part of a special day in her life. Come and be part of this humorous, heartwarming story and join Leher on her journey as she is
determined to go into unknown exploring the themes of identity, authenticity, and complexity of increasingly digital world.
