The heal.be.live. Method is a multi-week program that uses theatre to foster self-reflection, while transforming personal narratives into opportunities for social impact. Participants are guided through a process to grow as: professionals, performers and people. "I have learned so much about how to be a professional...,good [collaborator], and how to take care of myself before taking care of others. I really believe in The heal.be.live. Method. I can’t wait to see what happens next." - Student
A silent sufferer turned social worker uses her life journey to guide readers into hope and light through poetry, commentary and activities. "Morgan Breon's book of poetry is devastating in its bold, clear-eyed, honest life experiences of love, loneliness, rejection, physical and spiritual pain, wrapped up in the heart's cry to know, "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?" A deeply personal journey...I as the reader, felt honored to be invited in, to look and listen." -Diane Venora
“Waking Up Alive” is a stage play that explores views on mental illness within: the black community, the black church, and similarly impacted communities at large. It discusses the reality of: weakened faith, redemption, God’s grace and God’s ability to use anyone...even the “broken.” Even the, dare say it, “mentally ill.” The play also explores how anyone, even the ones declared “most faithful” fall. And if they do indeed fall, they too, need help getting back up again.
This project strives to empower the voices of Black Women in America by creating a space for them to tell their own, full stories. These full stories involve the stories of 27 women and 72 hours of conversation. This project can be performed as a performance-only event or a performance mixed with a workshop! Immediately after the performance, the audience is invited to have community conversations in order to dive deeper into the themes and stories presented!
