Event Description:
On Saturday, August 19 at 7:30 PM, Celebration Barn Theater presents René Johnson’s g e e l.

g e e l is a devised, original one-woman show, written and performed by René Johnson. The action unfolds through thoughtful storytelling as her “tribe,” the audience, experiences a new kind of interactive theater that includes powerful dance and song in multiple languages, including English, Afrikaans, and Xhosa. Amanda Huotari, Executive Artistic Director of Celebration Barn shared, “Rene is a creative powerhouse with an incredible story of overcoming childhood trauma. She’s takes the audience on a journey from South Africa to Maine in beautiful and inspiring ways." René Johnson is the Creative Artistic Director of Theater Ensemble of Color and a member of the Lorem Ipsum Theater Collective. For the past 5 years she’s been on staff at Celebration Barn Theater as the Residence Manager, which has allowed her the opportunity to work alongside a wide range of collaborators to develop this show.
