    Do you remember the first time you became aware of your body? Wherever it was, whenever it was - chances are it stuck with you, forever.

    In a new show about the dark truths lurking in the dance and fitness world, Aging Ballerina finds herself tumbling down a body-dysmorphic rabbit hole at her Hollywood audition for the role of “Perfect Woman.” Join her on a raw and unpredictable journey from New York to London to Los Angeles, from bullies to birth control to Botox, as she learns to accept, forgive, and let it all go.

    As personal as it is relevant to society today, UNPACKED is inspired by the early days of spandex and tights and the devastating resurgence of low-cut jeans. Christina Morelli’s unfiltered love letter to the cruel voices in her head explores the truths about living with body dysmorphia, aging in Hollywood, and facing the mirror that's haunted her since her first plié. 

    Incorporating movement, comedy, a well-worn copy of “Eat, Pray, Love,” and emotional baggage so heavy it defies Ryanair standards, UNPACKED will bring audiences into a world that feels both familiar and shocking no matter what life path, diet, or skin care routine you choose to follow.
