Dear Audience Member,

Thank you for sharing the playmaking space with us for this performance of Jump. As co-therapists for this production, our goal is to hold a safe-enough space for you to actively witness this important story and process your responses within a community of care.

Following this performance, we invite you to the Paul Green Gallery where either one or both of us will be facilitating a brief 20 minute group processing session.

This time and space will offer opportunities for grounding, expression of personal feelings and responses related to the piece through words and/or movement, and an intentional closure experience.

Thank you again for your presence and the generous gift of bearing witness.

Warmly,

Cameron Wade & Barbara Kaynan
