Based on found text in Peter Levine's breakthrough book on healing trauma, "Waking The Tiger," this multi-form piece uses music, visuals, sound, movement, and the subtlety of language itself to explore how the rational brains of humans can interfere with the natural need to discharge our activated threat responses. Inability to discharge these activations results in PTSD. We can learn from the animal kingdom and their instinctive responses to danger. As Levine points out, "the foundation for human physiology evolved with the earliest creatures that crawled out of the primordial ooze."

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.

NO REFUNDS will be granted.
