    "JESSE BONNELL’S THEATER GROUP EXPERIMENTS WITH GROUP THERAPY SESSIONS"

     

     

     

    “Eloquent revolutionaries . . . the performances are beautiful and beautifully orchestrated.” 

     

    —L.A. Weekly

     

    In 1968, the groundbreaking documentary Journey into Self revealed eight strangers as they underwent therapy in an attempt to “to discover the secret of being together,” during a time of civil unrest and American consciousness raising. Nearly four decades later, L.A.’s celebrated theater ensemble Poor Dog Group confronts Group Therapy, a new work of documentary theater that mirrors that film’s voyeuristic lens and delves into 16 hours of the Group’s actual transcribed therapy with a licensed professional. 

     

    After more than a decade of creating theater together, the members of Poor Dog Group amplify their self-interrogation into an uncensored—sometimes funny, sometimes poignant—work of live art. Through chance operations, each performance of Group Therapy originates in a past encounter, then quickly spins into spontaneous reflections, real-time rerecordings and cinematic gestures. As the company members process their divorces, dependencies, privileges and vulnerabilities, they create a portrait of a generation’s hustle and, above all, what it is like to endure.
