If you've never been to a Drawn Out Storytelling Live Show, you're missing out. It's an epic experience stemming from the basic art of storytelling and blossoming into so much more. We take each story and find our own way to "Draw Out" the story through the able hands of ...cartoonists, musicians, and this time: DANCERS WHO PAINT!
At Drawn Out we believe that stories have a right not just to be told, but to be told as "art." For a better idea of what we do, check out our website: www.drawnoutstorytelling.com
This Tuesday, February 14th, is the day when your typical alone time seems dramatically more depressing because of the pity that seems to drench everyone's questionings of your plans. We understand. We're not going to tell you that this is the time to go take risks romantically - "you don't know what joy you might find." We believe that when you don't know what you might find maybe a cup of tea is a better option. Nobody likes desperation, and we don't think you'll like what you find on Craigslist.
Instead we suggest that you start thinking of the people you've hated - dwell in that space of self-inflicted social pariahtude. What better time to focus your unnecessary grudges than when society has already kicked you into a hole of loneliness and then whimpered condescending condolences as they bury you alive - alone.
Then come see four stories of similar hatreds - four stories where metaphor allows self-doubt and fear to masquerade as people in a world where enemies need faces. Four stories that will help us understand the hatred we focus on those who have "wronged" us and what it means to have "wronged" us in the first place.
