Blending movement and technology, Recovery is a multimedia solo piece inspired by a woman’s struggle with addiction. The work culminates in a “rebirth” where she finds a more purposeful calling in helping others live, move forward and heal. Following the performance, the audience will be asked to join a talk back with Johari Mayfield, BIGVISION and Gay & Sober where we will address the opioid crisis, what it means to heal, and how legal drugs have led to lethal consequences.
General Admission: $20
