Fenway Health presents the premiere of The Way We Live Now (2018), an immersive performance created by Maia Dolphin-Krute and Jesse Erin Posner. Inspired by a Susan Sontag short story that gave voice to so many caught up in the AIDS epidemic, this new work features a group of people caught up in our current crisis: the opioid epidemic.
A group of friends (Elizabeth Addison, Meghann Perry, Kevin Brunton) interact with hospital personnel (Eugene Massey, Renée Singletary) as they navigate a hospital waiting room. This public art + public health project invites conversations about our wide range of experiences in and around opioids, chronic pain, trauma and hope. We invite you to join us in ending a silence that leads to death.
The Way We Live Now (2018) was made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ Creative City Program, with funding from The Barr Foundation and with additional support from The Boston Foundation. Further funding is being provided by the Live Arts Boston grant of The Boston Foundation. Additional support is being provided by Fenway Health.
Free and open to the public, no tickets required
