AUDIENCE REACTIONS TO

THEATER: A SACRED PASSAGE

 

“Comprised of life stories and ‘passages,’ Theater: A Sacred Passage attests to the bracing power of narrative to move, teach, and inspire… Rarely have these intersections among historical, social, political, cultural and personal contingencies been so movingly and provocatively realized in staged performances as they are in Sacred Passage."

- Diversity, equity, and inclusion expert

Gordon Nakagawa

"[The show] is a smartly-directed production which weaves 5 local theatre artists' family stories and individual dreams with larger cultural forces: economics, racism, gender discrimination, more. The acting ensemble is superb, and the project is very moving."

- Beth Cleary

ABOUT THEATER:
A SACRED PASSAFE

This production was an original performance piece devised by the original five core artists of Full Circle from their personal journeys into theater. Their narratives embodied their many challenges and transformational experiences in becoming theater artists and how their lives and work reflected the huge changes in local and national theater communities over the past two decades. The piece incorporated acting, storytelling, choreography and music.
