What is important to you? What have you learned from your parents, their parents, your ancestors? What do you need to communicate to your children, to your family, your community? How do you heal? How do you help? What do you do?

Stories are important to me. Sometimes the stories we need to share are stories of pain, challenge or tragedy. Sometimes the stories we need to tell are of beauty, joy, and mirth. The muscles engaged when laughing are the same muscles engaged in screaming.
The human capacity to listen, to be present with another’s personal suffering or joy, and to empathize: these are three reasons why theatre is important to me. To come together as a group, audience and performers, and to experience a shared catharsis, might just open the door for someone in the room to find their voice. They might be able to finally say out loud their own experience with addiction, with post-traumatic stress, with memory loss, or with prejudices of race, gender, age, sexual identity, or any of the many “-isms” in the world. They might just see, in that moment, that they are not alone.

This is why I do theatre: to give voice to my own doubts, rage, and hurt, and to celebrate my own strength, to laugh at my own foibles, and to rejoice in the humanity of it all. I go to see and hear theatre, music, and dance from around the world to hear the doubt, rage and hurt of others, to celebrate their strengths, to laugh at their foibles, and to rejoice in community, culture, and the humanity of it all.

theatre KAPOW started very simply as a small group of friends who wanted to explore producing a particular play in a particular way. Over the last eleven years, tKAPOW has grown to a company of artists producing yearly a season of three plays, a series of play readings, providing opportunities for artist training, and developing new work. From classical and contemporary plays to returning to the basics of voice, speech, and movement, our tag line is always our guide: “train. explore. challenge. inspire. CREATE.”

This is how I heal. This is how I help. This is what I do.

Give a gift to theatre KAPOW. A monthly gift can make your dollars go even further so that we can continue to share and explore the stories that are important to us all.

Thank you.
Carey Cahoon, Co-founder and Company Member
