The video here is of the two-plus hour performance,“Not Here: From Howling Hurt to Healing Hope, The Alchemy of Addiction Recovery.” Please note that the vast majority of performers had never had any previous theater experience. Several members of the ensemble were only present at a fraction of the rehearsals, and one rehearsed with us remotely and then traveled to Eugene for the live show. It is remarkable what people can do who come together with open hearts and soul-based stories that call to be told. It was an enormously challenging, often wrenching, difficult ride, punctuated with abundant laughter, numerous uplifting moments, and ultimately pulled off in the spirit of love, as a gift to one another and to the audience, our sacred witnesses to the outcome of our memorable journey together. May the transformative magic and power of theater live on!
