October Public Show: “Who Am I Now?”

October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- $15
Earth Emerging from the Pandemic

We have all lived through nearly two years of the Covid-19 pandemic, alone and together. Each of us has faced times of emergency and emergence, loss and grief, disorientation and recalibration, growth and celebration. As we enter the fall season, what changes have we lived through, and what are we harvesting from the seeds we planted? What challenges have we met that we didn’t know we could overcome or rise above? What have we learned about ourselves and the world we inhabit? Who are we now?

Join True Story for this online community-building improvisational theater experience in which personal stories from audience volunteers are respectfully transformed into theatre pieces in the moment. Come to share a story or listen and watch as True Story’s actors creatively embody the essence of the feelings and themes we all witness. Playback Theatre can offer new perspectives, a space to be seen and heard, a memorable artistic experience, and an enhanced sense of connection with and empathy for others.

Tickets: $15 general, $5 – $30 pay-what-you-can, free option available

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.
