The past never returns, what returns is not the past,  but a present that has distant roots.” ~ Luigina Sgarro

Season 14 is a reason for celebration as it marks the return to a time when audiences and artists can once again share the same space.  It is also, however, a time to reflect on where we have been for the past 16 months.  We have known all along that what would define this company was not perseverance but the ability to handle transition.  As we transition to a time “after,” we must ask ourselves how we have changed. What are we bringing back with us?  This season, we will explore stories of return. The longest journey home is often the one we must make within ourselves and this season we encounter so many characters diving deep within themselves searching for meaning in their lives.  How do I maintain my identity when trapped in the grips of an oppressor?  How do I recognize myself when my body won’t stop changing?  How can you ever go back to a place of innocence when you can’t unknow what you have learned?  

For 13 seasons, tKAPOW has espoused a passion for the immediacy of live theatre.  We often talk about how we, as artists, must remain fully present.  But this present truly does have distant roots, and a return to the theatre this season must include an embrace of our shared and individual experiences over the past 16 months.  Things have been forever changed and any return must acknowledge that.  We are very grateful for your faith in us as we move forward and transition to this new time while always acknowledging where we have been.
