In the last decades of the last century, thousands migrated to the Pacific Northwest in pursuit of radical freedom, land, forest and sky. They formed communes, cohousing, co-ops and autonomous zones. Some communities endured and others crumbled, fell apart, mossed over.

Inspired by firsthand interviews with dozens of residents of utopian communities of the 60s, 70s and 80s, Psychic Utopia honors all those who’ve felt the call of Oregon could lead to something larger than themselves. Using special techniques, in a studio brimming with house plants and humans, Hand2Mouth’s new show is a joyful experiment in what it takes to build utopia with all of us, here, now and in the future.
