Passageways utilizes song, story, art, and humor to explore the physical and emotional repairs on the path to recovery from a decade of trauma, including sexual abuse by a trusted mentor, rapidly succeeded by a gastrectomy, coma, organ failure, six years unable to eat or drink a drop of fluid, 28 reconstructive surgeries, and the accompanying PTSD. This archetypal hero’s journey incorporates paintings and original music as the songwriter continues to discover how one redefines “home” after trauma. She recreates herself through discoveries in song and art, and is able to reclaim her voice and find her place in the world. A compelling and uplifting journey through reimagining – and literally re-membering – the idea of “home.”
