Sinner Saint was bursting with gratitude. Over 1,000 community members came together to share in the process of creating Inheritance and supported us in building our living legacy. You supported us creatively, physically, financially, emotionally and spiritually. We were grateful for each other – the seven remarkably talented women who dug deep into their hearts, souls, power, rage and love to bring their full, unapologetic selves to this production.
We felt relieved to take a break. Each of us worked our tails off and are thrilled to model self-care and self-love by marking our transition to ‘what’s next’ with a pause, and the space to celebrate and reflect on what we’ve accomplished.
We felt the blissful disorientation of success. After spending every day working on building a vision... and then finishing a masterpiece... waking up the the next morning can feel strangely unfocused and dream-like.
We felt sadness that this iteration of our work has come to an end. We felt grief completing the production, a show we’ve dedicated ourselves to so feverishly over the past year and a half. We felt surrender, finally offering this baby we’ve been birthing to the world.
We felt transformed by the personal work we have each done and been able to share with you. We felt embraced by friends and family through our moments of glory, immense change and failure.
We felt inspired by each other and the responses from our audience. We felt curious about what kind of butterfly effect our work will have. We felt validated already having requests to perform Inheritance in five other cities. We felt ignited knowing that the greatness Sinner Saint has to offer has only just begun. And we feel hopeful that whatever happens next will be magnificent.
So what IS next?
Over the next few months Sinner Saint will begin its strategic planning process. And, we will begin creating what is next by tapping into ‘what is now’…
… to be continued.
