Event description

Description

Adapted and Directed by Jennifer Linde from Professor Linda Lederman's research on communication, storytelling and recovery. Filmed April 9, 2016. Stories reflect both the individual and collective human experience. Stories of recovery operate as embodied, performative, moments of communication that direct our attention to human experiences with addiction and provide frameworks for understanding alcohol dependency. Use, over-use, and sometimes abuse of alcohol exist as daily realities for many college students. This performance foregrounds student stories of recovery in order to shed light on the problem of alcoholism for college students and to generate a dialogue about the possibilities embedded in recovery.

Recovery is a trigger script compilation of quotations from narratives written by people who began their recovery from alcoholism while they were under-graduate students in Laitman, Lederman, and Silos’ book, Voices of Recovery from the Campus. Additional resources include Beyond the Bottle by Linda C. Lederman and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA) “Guiding Principles of Recovery.” Trigger scripting is a performance method developed at Arizona State University (Valentine, 1979, 1983) that targets specific topics/audiences for the purpose of public dialogue.
