I AM THEATRE: August Schulenburg

By August Schulenburg
We're continuing our participation in the I AM THEATRE initiative launched by TCG with a story of my own. If you haven't already, be sure to also check out Isaiah Tanenbaum and Carissa Cordes' video.
The particular story that I share is inspired by the work of Bill George, the theatre artist who founded the Little Pond Arts Retreat. Those who read this blog may recognize Little Pond as the site where Flux holds our annual retreats; it is also the place where, less than a month ago, I was married to fellow Fluxer Heather Cohn.
As you will see, Bill's influence in my life and work stretches back a good distance, and this video is both a note of gratitude to him, and an encouragement to others to share their stories. The stories I share are from my memories of a production I saw fourteen or so years ago, so I hope any errors of memory will be forgiven. For those unfamiliar with the Bahá'í faith I reference in the video, you can learn more here and here.
