Colby College Department of Theater and Dance Presents: René Johnson’s ‘g e e l’

Fri. Sep 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free

g e e l is a devised, original one-woman show, written and performed by René Johnson. The action unfolds through thoughtful storytelling as her “tribe,” the audience, experiences a new kind of interactive theater that includes powerful dance and song in multiple languages, including English and Afrikaans.

The show is to challenge our daily norms, our cultural norms, our habits and routines, to be brave in the face of personal emotional growth and awareness, together. The story is to create space for genuine connectedness in times of emotional distress, duress, fatigue, bewilderment and/or awe, together.

Amanda Huotari, Executive Artistic Director of Celebration Barn Theater, shared, “René is a creative powerhouse with an incredible story of overcoming childhood trauma. She takes the audience on a journey from South Africa to Maine in beautiful and inspiring ways.”

Ages 13+/parents use best judgement for adult themes, adult language, and severe violence depicted.
