In the 1980s, thousands descended upon a dusty patch of Central Oregon to build an alternative society. They were followers of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, an Indian guru who preached a cocktail of sexual liberation, impending nuclear catastrophe, and vigorous meditation. Now Hand2Mouth, known for inventive, vividly staged work, uses that episode as a jumping-off point for Psychic Utopia, a performance exploring intentional communities and the lengths to which people will go for a fuller, freer life. Director Jonathan Walters calls it a “mind experiment” for 2017.
