Passageways: Songs of Connection, Abnormal & Sublime

May 16 | Thu | 7:30 pm |
View Website

Written, performed, composed by Amy Oestreicher Passageways explores the physical and emotional repairs that accompany the path to recovery from a decade of the playwright's autobiographical trauma, including sexual abuse by a trusted mentor, rapidly succeeded by a gastrectomy, coma, organ failure, six years unable to eat or drink a drop of fluid, 28 reconstructive surgeries and the long-winded journey of PTSD that follows. This multidisciplinary narrative explores trauma through the archetypal hero's journey, incorporating live-painting, movement, and original music while illustrated by mixed-media art, and visual media. The story follows the exploration of a woman redefining 'home' after trauma. She recreates herself through the discovery of the arts and is able to reclaim her voice and rejoin her community. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder begins a call to adventure through an archetypal hero's journey.
