REACH OUT is a collection of multimedia stories inspired by a devised play written by this group of artists. In the original play, nine people from around the world sign up for a self-help retreat that promises they can become their "perfect" selves, but is this really better? These stories have now been adapted into an online platform to still explore these characters' desire to reach out.
Students of Directed Research Devised:
Morgan Alexander, Jodie Cortez, Grace Gordon, Gebriella Hailemariam, Izzy Hanson-Johnston, Jeffrey Kosharek, Santiago Mallan, Jessica McGinnis, and Yunnan Xu.
