Carol Burnett once said, "Comedy is Tragedy, plus Time". D'Lo once said, "I believe that it's in the active reflecting and then transforming of pain from tragic moments in our lives, that we survive best in this nutty-ass world. It's even better for our mental health when we can find ways to laugh about the silly and frustrating things that have happened to us." That's not really a quote, and D'Lo is writing this in 3rd person.
D'Lo will facilitate a process with students/participants who want explore how to spin their tragic moments (experiences and micro-aggressions around racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia) into crafted stories inclusive of a narrative arc, embedded comedicmoments, and performance tips. This workshop is less about unearthing trauma, and more about creating a space which fosters collective healing through story sharing.
