Circles of Support

August 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

Saturday, August 24th 7:30pm
There are many different life circumstances from natural disasters to personal illness, relocation to giving birth, restructuring of family to loss of a loved one, where support from others makes all the difference in how we get through.

“Circles of Support” explore these life experiences, the personal to the global/macro. Examples of what is working personally and community-wise, increasing comfort and acceptability around asking for help, and how there may be concentric circles of support reaching outwards.

What happens in a True Story Theater performance?  Our events bring together the delight of improvisation with the riveting vulnerability of people sharing their personal truth.

The show’s emcee (called “the conductor”) facilitates brief, spontaneous conversations with volunteers from the audience who share their own feelings and experiences related to the show’s theme.  After each conversation, the actors and musician immediately embody the key feelings and actions they heard, using movement, music, dialogue, and superb listening. All of it is improvised on the spot. During the course of a 75 minute show, True Story enacts about 6-8 stories.

From this simple interaction, audience members laugh, cry, get insights about their lives, and feel an expanded sense of community. You can share a moment from your life and see it performed, or just come to watch.

What are True Story Theater’s classes like?  We will teach you the basic of Playback Theatre, which can hone your listening skills for everyday life.  All are welcome.  Classes are supportive, informal, intimate, and fun, an enriching experience for both newcomers and experienced actors.
