GOOD GRIEF tickets are now available!

*Look for an extended run of GOOD GRIEF at Everett Stage in Winter 2019. (Dates TBD)

 

Everett’s dynamic multimedia dance theater enters an unburdening process: the mind and bodies of individuals after enduring trauma.

The artists have used therapeutic approaches such as Internal Family Systems, EMDR, dioramas and performance to explore healing for their own life experiences. Onstage, they dive inward, uncover parts of the self, slip into the unconscious, and look at the body made foreign and disconnected – all in search of a true self. In Good Grief, Everett presents a journey of fragmented memories, exiled parts, and the hope that dwells in a thriving imagination.  

 

 

When I open the window, I open myself – Natalya Gorbanevskaya

This being human is a guest house.

Every morning is a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…

Welcome and entertain them all.

Treat each guest honorably.

The dark thought, the same, the malice,

Meet them at the door laughing,

And invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

Because each has been sent.

-RUMI
