- $15
2021 Surrapators

We warmly invite you to join us for an interactive performance on the theme of Longing for Belonging, featuring skilled actors from True Story Theater and hosted by Common Street Spiritual Center.

DESCRIPTION

This unique and intimate experience is designed to explore the shared human need for connection and belonging in a world where we can sometimes feel fragmented, disconnected, isolated, or just lonely.

Through the art of creative improvisation, using movement, music, song, and dialogue, the performers will embody and reflect the heart of each story shared by audience volunteers – however ordinary or extraordinary, challenging or joyful.

This powerful and transformative form of theater is known as Playback Theatre. It offers a truly moving experience that fosters empathy – essential for building strong relationships and creating a supportive environment for spiritual growth.

This event offers a space for exploration and reflection, and an opportunity to witness the community’s value, meaning, and purpose in action. It’s a must-see for anyone interested in connection, community, or creative expression.

So come join us for a magical afternoon of listening, learning, laughter, and tears, and witness the power of True Story Theater for yourself. Whether you’re a member of Common Street, friend or family, new to the community or fan of True Story, don’t miss out on this unforgettable experience!

This event is open to the public, and all are welcome.

What happens in a True Story Theater performance?  Our events bring together the delight of improvisation with the courageous 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 feel validated, 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 basics 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.
