EVENING'S THEME: Stories of invisible identities
Important aspects of our identity may not be evident to others. Examples of invisible identities we can explore are religion, class background, military service, mixed race, sexual orientation, political beliefs, chronic pain, and more. In this performance, we'll explore the impact of having important parts of ourselves hidden and how things change when they become known to others. Come share your experience and it's fine to come and just witness these stories.
Explore this important theme and an unusual opportunity to see many of the ensemble members of True Story Theater perform in one evening
ABOUT TRUE STORY THEATER:
True Story Theater is a nonprofit theater company that offers over 70 improvisational performances and workshops a year for community groups, businesses, and individuals in New England and California. We work with hospitals, universities, corporations, religious communities for teen leaders, cancer survivors, activists, philanthropists, business leaders as well as for weddings, birthdays, and other important private events.
Our mission is to promote social healing through theatre. We perform and teach an embodied theatre of empathy, respect and creativity. Volunteers from the audience are helped to share whats important in their lives. On the spot, actors then portray the heart of what they heard using music, movement, and dialogue.
From this simple interaction, people laugh, cry, share fresh insights, and bond. Our events create a respectful atmosphere where every voice can be heard and any story told however ordinary or extraordinary, difficult or joyful. True Story Theater offers audiences fresh perspectives, deeper connections, and a renewed appreciation for our common humanity.
