Come share and listen to stories on the theme “Memories of Home.”
When you think of home what images and memories stand out? How has your past and present home shaped who you are? What do you long for?
Oluwadamilola Apotieri-Abdulai, applied drama practitioner and social art-ivist, is the founder of Playback Nigeria, using drama and theater for advocacy and empathy for children, women, and youth in Nigeria.
At True Story Theater events, audience members spontaneously share moments from their lives based on the theme. Actors then instantly portray the heart of each story using music, movement, and dialogue. Anyone is welcome to share a personal story on the theme. It’s also fine to come just to watch the performance. See TrueStoryTheater.com for a schedule of performances and workshops.
Space generously donated by The Fairmount Innovation Lab, a unique, cross-sector lab, incubator, and accelerator for elevating, launching and growing creative enterprises along the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line.
