Behind The Mask
July 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDTFree
1 pandemic, 2, rehearsals, 3 time zones, 4 weeks of writing, 5 masks, and 6 feet apart. What happens when the mask comes off?
Behind The Mask is a live performance that explores how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our worlds both inside and out. Our storytellers are everyday people who were courageous enough to embark on a raw creative journey, uncertain of where it would lead. They found catharsis through writing, collaborating, and now in sharing their stories. One by one, the storytellers will guide you through their deeply personal lived experiences during COVID, many experiences of which may resonate with you. The intention of this performance is to build collective resilience in response to the isolating effects of COVID.
For our friends who are deaf or hard of hearing, this performance will have a live ASL Interpreter.

“This show was never about the show. It is about the creative process, a multi-layered process which promotes healing in the writer, the storyteller, and the audience” – Andrea Morgan, Creator/Director
