“Dualities” Break Open Showcase is about exploring truth of light and shadows–What it is, what it isn’t. We also discuss the power of awareness for our dualistic nature.
The three hour Break Open Showcase will be a hybrid of artist performances as well as an open mic for you to express your unfiltered thoughts in poetry, music, and spoken word.
Leave PC, peachy, and filters out the door. This is an intimate occasion for Real Talk on the topic of Dualities.

Roman Wyden, Relationship Coach, Filmmaker, and Podcast host
“You. Love. Life.” is an unconventional podcast that’s quickly becoming a can’t-miss listen on iTunes. Host, Roman Wyden is an LA-based marriage and relationship coach who takes a decidedly honest, uninhibited, and unconventional approach to conversations about love, marriage, divorce, family, intimacy, desire, and trust.
The Podcast features interviews with a sex researcher, a former porn star, an arranged marriage couple, a former sex addict with bipolar disorder, a cross-dressing school teacher, and filmmaker, Tosca Musk (Elon Musk’s sister) to name a few.
You. Live. Life. Podcast Show will be doing a live podcast interview, hosted by Roman Wyden.
Roman is a relationship coach and award-winning writer/director, recording artist, and podcast host, Roman Wyden has dedicated his life to the exploration of intimacy, playfulness, and authenticity in modern-day relationships. Growing up in Switzerland, he took various art forms as a medium to sooth his struggle with understanding the true meaning of love. The exploration took him from being a DJ, musical performances on stage, acting for film and TV and eventually finding his voice as an artist at the highly acclaimed Pasadena Art Center. His graduation film was an autobiographical exploration of the sexual awakening between two fourteen-year-olds. He has since made his name as a commercial and narrative director for such projects as Eleanor Roosevelt Award-winning documentary Ageless Wisdom, the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival winner Deface as well as most recently the short films Max, Hiroko, and the short film festival darling Ricky Limon. He is currently developing several short-form narrative series as well as recording his weekly podcast “You. Love. Life.”, now on iTunes.
