A YEAR OF CHANGE
Since March of 2020, SOULO has moved almost entirely online.
My partner and I moved east to an off-grid hunting and fishing lodge in South West Nova Scotia. To find out more about that click here
2020 also saw the launch of Season 2 of Drag Heals!
I also had the privilege of taking a group of incredible young people in California and British Columbia through the 10-week Soulo process.
DRAG HEALS - SEASON 2
DRAG HEALS is a hybrid stage workshop and documentary TV series (11x 30min) that follows eight drag artists over an intensive ten day workshop to build their own show. In each workshop, a guest coach joins stage director Tracey Erin Smith in exploring soul-deep story sharing techniques as well as the unique talents and skills required from a drag performer.
For the first part of the theatre workshop I tried to hide who I was and what I needed and wanted to say behind a lot of intellectualizing, theorizing, and bullshit. I didn’t necessarily do this on purpose. But no matter; it wasn’t going to work. Tracey has the gift of insight. As in, she’ll see right into your center, and in the most gentle and tough way, bring something out of you that is vulnerable, and strong, and exquisitely beautiful. I am not finished this unfolding. Tracey got me started. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
