About the show
Dana Aber’s Baggage at the Door is a wry peek inside the head of a seemingly well-adjusted trauma-queen— it is one woman’s struggle to get through the terrors of her past and reclaim tenderness. With music written in collaboration with award-winning emerging composers, Baggage at the Door is an autobiographical solo show addressing the critical moment when a trauma survivor realizes she may no longer be able to simply cope; when falling in love triggers her latent PTSD, she might be f*cked. Incorporating video games, humor, and video projections, this quirky and candid piece explores her attempts to break the PTSD trauma cycle and find strength to open the door toward a better life.
