Artist of Impact Tina Overbury Opens FireCircle - One Family with OMYGOD

“I light three fires. One to wake me up. One to keep me from going crazy, and one to keep me warm. I’m off to Ireland for my birthday. There. I’ve said it. Now you know. I’m not sticking around for a party. I’m going to Ireland instead. 

I don’t know why. Well I do know, but it doesn’t make sense. It’s like I’ve been called to go. So I’m going. And I’m going to be 50 right? So who cares what you think.” - an excerpt from Tina Overbury’s Solo Show OMYGod  

PowHERhouse Impact Media Group is pleased to announce Storyteller and Artist of Impact Tina Overbury will be opening FireCircle-ONE FAMILY with a digital performance of her solo-show: OMYGod, a mythical and redemptive tale about the women we burned, the children we buried, and the gods we have worshipped to the detriment of living as one family. Tina Overbury’s OMYGod opens the FireCircle in the spirit of restorative justice, reconciliation, and as a bridge-builder between cultures.

Writer/Performer Tina Overbury invites us in on her comedic and harrowing journey through time following the modern-day making of a madwoman. An 8-year-old girl looks for her Mom in a place called Inglenook while her 49-year-old self, a reliable chronic second-guesser goes all-in on the eve of her 50th birthday to follow a call to lay Brigid’s cross on the ground where 800  'Home Babies' lay in Tuam, County Galway, Ireland. We are greeted and frequented by The Morrigan, a triple essence Irish deity of prophecy, battle and sovereignty who shows up to warn and warm up by the fire. OMYGod is a feminist, and non-denominational tromp through history, offering stories of witches, dragons, ravens, and willow trees about a woman in a red dress and a little girl who just wants to know where her home is.

Tina Overbury is an Artist of Impact with PowHERhouse media group. She is Playwright and a storyteller who works with narrative and story structure as a vehicle for human connection. She roots herself in Myth, Mysticism, and a personal practice of faith. As a proud associate of PowHERhouse Media Group, she is a Co-Host of GATHER for HER where she listens and story gathers from and for the integrated leaders of tomorrow and the Artists for Impact of today.
