Stories of Invisible Identities

October 6, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

- $20

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.

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.
