Sojourn stages some of Portland’s most thoughtful theatre. Several stinging scenes riled up heedful documentary, ultimately reclaiming/demanding positive attributes of “didactic,” “rhetorical,” “instructive.” Forgoing story structure was chancy, possibly heretical, but meta-staging issue-related discourse yielded no less compelling conversation. Signature interpretive gesticulations somewhat distracting. Wished for less presentation, more immersion.
