Shakespeare BEYOND Bars – led by Curt Tofteland

Description: Facilitator, Curt Tofteland is a freelance theater artist – actor, director, producer playwright – and the founder of Shakespeare Behind Bars. Using art, theatre, the collected works of William Shakespeare, and original writing, Shakespeare BEYOND Bars is a personal exploration into what it means to be a human being. Within a circle-of-trust and confidentiality, participants seek to live into four essential questions:   1. Who am I?   2. What do I love?  3. How will I live my life knowing I will die?  4. What is my gift to humankind?

The Shakespeare BEYOND Bars Restorative Circle process uses the concepts of Tribe – human beings are social creatures; Story – the only way to heal trauma is to find language for it; Reflection – the only way to become who we wish to be is to be present with who we are and understand who we were and where we came from.
