Local performer, director, and deviser (and winner of FPCT's third annual Monologue Slam) Elizabeth Ung shares more of her incredible original work with a piece on healing from generational trauma and reclaiming lost identities.
We're Reckoning Seeds & the Light Bleeds is a devised workshop production created and performed by an ensemble of local performing artists! A new monument is built to lay the past to rest as our Ancestors struggle to be remembered on. In an attempt to reclaim their identity, the Ancestors come down to the World of Collective Forgetting to possess their respective Progenies. In this piece of original writings, movement, and spectacle, we are shown the beauty and pains of what we inherit from those who came before us.
