Creative Exchange; Healing Dialogue and Action
“Waging Witness: Wounded Healers on the Journey to Justice” is a live performance project happening at USC focused on healing and community. The performance starts with the words of three former prisoners and another three survivors of violence. Over the last semester, they gave hours of testimony about how trauma changed their lives, and playwright Velina Hasu Houston, USC Distinguished Professor in Dramatic Writing, distilled their words into scenes.
The participants are part of an organization called Healing Dialogue and Action: https://healingdialogueandaction.org
