It's been a while. How are you?
Things have been pretty quiet under the umbrella. We've been focusing on spending time with our loved ones, taking care of our bodies, showing up for our communities, and tending to our hearts. As our stages went dark, we took a little break from the hustle of production to check back in with ourselves and get ready for the next step of our journey together.
Thanks to our incredible Umbrella Circle, we've been able to weather this storm with compassion for each other and the work.
While we know the metaphorical rain continues — and probably will for a while as we continue to heed the warnings from our medical professionals — we're seeing something start to grow.
Is it a podcast? A letter writing campaign? A masked performance for an audience of one? A collaborative Zoom dance-a-thon? Who knows! We're not sure what it all looks like yet, but we're rolling up our sleeves to dig in.
This Give to the Max Day, we invite you to join us in the dirt in the following ways:
We miss you a whole lot, and we're looking forward to finding a new way to be (safely) together again.
Together is better,
Hannah K. Holman
