Yes I Can – Healing Through Expression 



The 2020-21 CSU Performing Arts Season begins on November 13th and 14th with an original performance work, Yes I Can- Healing Through Expression. The production is a collaboration between the Title III Theatre Arts Program, the CSU Counseling Services Center, and the University’s NAMI chapter. The program presents a tapestry of narratives told in words and dance that explore the individual challenges, surprises and successes of being a Central State University student in the midst of protest and pandemic.  


Yes I Can – Healing Through Expression is developed by director John Fleming, writer Phillitia Charlton, video coordinator Elias Kelley and counselor Sonia Hunt. The script is written by CSU students and features dances from Praise in Motion, Everett Little and Flag Dance expressions by Jaton Brame.
