Thanks to everyone who came to or participated in "Breaking Our Silence: A Performance and Celebration" at Ithaca High School's Kulp Auditorium on May 21! We were blown away by the grace, candor, and talent of all the performers, from the 60-strong Ithaca High School Chorale and the actors from Civic Ensemble's ReEntry Theatre Program to the poets, dancers, movers, and storytellers who took the stage. The event was the grand finale for our series on storytelling and mental health in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. The incomparable Rachel Lampert made sure everything flowed beautifully.
