Ongoing Active Bystander Practice Group (Commit to 4 Sessions)

September 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

- $25 – $65

Have you been feeling motivated to address family member, friends, and colleagues biases, micro-aggressions, and prejudices in a constructive and effective manner? Are you willing to look at your own biases and welcome feedback in a supportive and encouraging environment?

 

True Story Theater is excited to announce that we will be offering continued Bystander Intervention practice groups throughout the months of September and October (and beyond) for participants of previous Bystander workshops and new participants to develop their skills as Upstanders! This ongoing group is a wonderful chance to dig deeper into role-playing scenarios, practicing developing your skills in confronting bias and welcoming feedback, and learning skills to hold dialogues with people you know.

 

To join our exciting four bi-weekly sessions meeting on Wednesday afternoons at 4-5:30pm ET on September 9, September 23, October 7, and October 21, please go to this Eventbrite link!

 

Please be aware that you must commit to coming to all four sessions to attend this group. Once you submit your payment of $25-$65 for the whole series, you gain access to a special Eventbrite page that gives you the Zoom link to join. Additionally, before our group meets Eventbrite will send the Zoom link again via email.

 

Please register for this series before September 9.

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.
