“BEYOND TESTIMONY: TRAGIC SPECTATORSHIP & VICTIMS OF TRAUMA AS AGENTS OF CHANGE” -
The first theatrical evening, entitled "Call Me By My Name,'" was inspired by Eve Ensler's work with the women at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, was a performance of monologues written by the St. Joseph's Orphanage Restorative Inquiry Writers' Group. This is a an ongoing seed project/proof of concept for an expansion of Dovetail's work, through Threshold Collaborative, with incarcerated individuals, those in reentry programs, and others affected by institutionalized traumatic abuse.
