- District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC) presents
A one-man show by DC poet, performer, and community activist Quique Aviles
Directed by B Stanley
Soundscape by Nate Taylor
Rehab is a one-man performance piece, written and performed by Quique Aviles and directed by B Stanley. Rehab combines story telling, poetry, monologues, and music to portray a cycle of addiction, recovery, and relapse. In the
show, Quique lays bare his own deeply personal path of becoming an addict, being an addict, and struggling to recover. Almost two years ago, Quique entered rehab for the third time. When he finished the 30-day program, he decided to use performing as a catapult for rebound. The performance that emerged is both a testimony and a catharsis. Quique's intention is to share the pain, the insanity, the humor, and the love that comes with surrender. This is not a "say no to drugs" piece. It is simply a request for all of us to consider the humanity of all addicts.
