Psychic Utopia

New Expressive Works (map) Southeast
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 3, 2 p.m. Continues through Dec. 2 2017

$15-25

Psychic Utopia mines Oregon’s history of intentional communities and out ’n’ out cults—we are, after all, the home of Rajneeshpuram—but is less interested in the macabre dealings of Manson family horror than the stories of real people who gave up their lives, their families, and in some cases, their sense of autonomy, to join these experiments in group living. Throughout, there is a permeating sense of existential anxiety, of dual longings for community and meaning within secular culture. The material is relatable and vast, made accessible through light audience interaction, as a sense of trust builds between the viewers and the actors. MEGAN BURBANK
