If you loved Sweet Tea Shakespeare's Behold, we've got something a little bit deeper, edgier, and harder for you this April. Musicians from Behold gather with friends far and near to present a unique event from Occasionalists, a group comprised of Sweet Tea Shakespeare's Jeremy Fiebig, Jake French, and Dean Dibling, plus Holy Trinity Rector Jeff Thornberg, and Hollywood screenwriter Rob Gibbs. The local members of the Occasionalists will present a concert of bitter and bittersweet music with friends Hannah Duncan, Kim O'Callaghan, and Nick Miller.
The concert is hard to explain. But the idea is this. Too often, we gloss over grief, fake smile, and either suppress or push aside our hurt just to make it a few steps down the road. In Trauma: a concert and reflections, we're going to sit with some tough stuff while we explore the nature of trauma, broken bodies and spirits, wrong answers, and falls from grace. Imagine a church service where church folks are challenged to step outside their comfort zones and not have easy answers; imagine a place where folks who can't find comfort easily do find community and commiseration; imagine a spiritual experience without expectation. This might be a downer, but it's on purpose. Smack dab in the middle of what some folks call Holy Week, without a rush to get to Easter. But, look, don't let this scare you.
This is for the people barely making it.
Come for great music, easy fellowship, and a drink or two.
Pay what you wilL
