About Emergence Festival: We Are Gathered Here Today

I’m nervous. I am – I’m nervous. I’m dying. I think. I think I’m dying and I’m nervous about it.

The last few moments of a person’s life are precious. But what do those last few moments feel like? A one-hour solo performance, set in the comfort of the character’s living room, ‘We Are Gathered Here Today’ explores love, loss, and bravery in the face of the unknown.

Written by Katie Jackson and developed with Allison Mickelson.

Please note: This performance contains mentions of death, mentions of suicide, and partial nudity.
