Triggered Life: A Requiem of Healing
Written by John Oluwole ADEkoje
Keith’s Testimonies written by Keith Mascoll and John Oluwole ADEkoje
Triggered Life is a multi-sensory, multimedia, post-traumatic story. How exactly does sexual trauma cast a shadow over the wholeness of Black male selfhood? When the shared cultural values of Black and Brown communities demand that men suppress their vulnerabilities and meet with their psychology alone.
Triggered Life follows a day in the life of two such men, Ishmael and Keith. As these men relive their stories of abusive childhoods, they embark on a journey to define their own manhood and identity.
The Triggered Life experience is a 90-minute tour de force with Act 2 Grounding facilitated by Roxann Mascoll, LICSW.
Performances take place on Thursday, November 10, 3:00–4:30 PM, and Saturday, November 12, 4:00–5:30 PM PST.
