Part social experiment, part earnest inquiry, this theatrical experience developed from a discussion of what kind of movement could realistically arise in reaction to today's cultural climate. Inspired by 1970's Erhard Seminars Training, personality tests, late night public access television, self-help guru Tony Robbins, and middle school pep rallys, THE SHIFT is the seminar to end all seminars. It is a movement away from feeling and into action. Acolytes of THE SHIFT are coming to Austin for two weekends only to lead an experiential and transformational seminar for groups of 30 people each night. THE SHIFT takes a hard look at our culture's obsession with self improvement, and how that energy might be channeled into improving one's community. 

Directed by: Katie Green
Devised by the ensemble: Christopher Alvarenga, Katie Green, Tal Leeds, Tim Mateer, Sean Moran, Heidi Penix, & Mary Catherine Rochford
