The Foundation for Self Leadership has proudly sponsored the presentation of Good Grief at the 2019 IFS Conference and, given enthusiastic reviews, is again pleased to sponsor this production in Boston. Presenting the show at these venues is made possible through funding from the New England Foundation for the Arts with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, along with generous special support from individual donors.

In Good Grief, Everett’s dynamic multimedia dance theater enters an unburdening process: the minds and bodies of individuals after enduring trauma.

Everett artists collaborated with IFS therapist David Medeiros to explore healing for their own life experiences. Onstage, they dive inward, uncover parts of the self, slip into the unconscious, and look at the body made foreign and disconnected – all in search of a true self. In Good Grief, Everett presents a journey of fragmented memories, exiled parts, and the hope that dwells in a thriving imagination.

To see my life’s work portrayed so powerfully and with such respect is extremely moving to me. - IFS founding developer Richard Schwartz
