The Short Kuts Show: ‘Mind Playing Tricks On Me’

May 28, 2020

Join The Short Kuts Show live storytelling experience for the first show of its 2020 season at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum. The show is inspired by the Geto Boys’ 1991 hit song, ‘Mind Playing Tricks On Me’–the first rap song to openly and unashamedly wax lyrical about struggling with mental illness.

Storytellers include Tracy Allen, LCSW-C (AKA “The Hood Therapist”),Chelsea Leah Burrell (meditation coach),vLatesha Higgs (mental health advocate for NAMI), Amber Taylor (digital communications Strategist), Dasie Thames (human resources executive), Winifred Winston, M.S.,GCDF (author), and a handful of other mental health practitioners, mental health patients (past and current), and patient’s loved ones, sharing the true stories—hilarious, unbelievable, suspenseful, amazing, tragic, and triumphant—of their lives wrestling with the monsters of mental illness

FAMILY:   As the pandemic persists, The Short Kuts Show Narrative Therapy Initiative ~&~ Live Storytelling Experience is also persisting in its efforts in creating individual and village uplift with storytelling coupled with therapeutic practices--“narrative therapy” (or “thairapy”, as The Short Kuts Show is a storytelling project inspired by/paying homage to the hair-chair therapists of the Black American barber/beauty shop--its barbers and stylists), as we call it--positively impacting the community.
