The universal mirror within the multicultural self is the metaphorical foundation of this research. The colorful rhythms of an identity and the possibility of achieving integration are presented through the combination of music, images, and movements in a videotaped dance production included in this alchemical hermeneutic thesis. The intense diversity of life’s events sometimes instigate a sense of disconnection with one’s true identity, which awakens a sense of a broken mirror within and, at times, a feeling of no true reflection. The necessity for self-reflection creates a psychological experience between the mirror and the individual, making the mirror a potential metaphor for one’s deeper self-image. The idea of being multicultural is extended beyond ethnicities and races. Rebuilding the broken mirror of the multicultural soul is a lifelong process, an endless stage of inner metamorphosis.
