What does a Boulder StoryHealers performance look like?

 

As Doug and I are reaching out to folks to help spread the word about Boulder StoryHealers, we frequently get asked what the performances for the workshop participants will look like.

 

Typically, we hold an intensive 2-weekend workshop with a particular group of folks affected by trauma, illness or adversity.

 

These participants (about 5-8 people, often with no performance experience) write their individual stories with Doug’s guidance.  Each individual develops a 10-15 minute monologue, sharing his or her story.  

 

From the blank page to the final monologue, participants experience practical guidance and unconditional support within a deeply safe environment.

 

The personal and autobiographical stories evolve with group collaboration and facilitator direction, often with poignancy and humor, moreover with truth and catharsis.

 

Participants need not worry about memorizing these pieces, but instead hold script as the stories manifest as fully embodied staged readings. After multiple run-throughs together, including full rehearsal time within the show space, the night of the event arrives.

 

All participants sit on stage together, each taking a turn to stand up and present their story. The group literally has your back as you stand and speak your truth.

 

Boulder StoryHealers provides the complete performance experience.  We hold the show in a theater with full sound and lighting.  Audiences for these shows tend to be exceptional. Doug is out in the audience, right there for you.

 

To additionally support the stories and participants, in our first workshop performance, we have a special guest. The stories of the group will be supported by acoustic music performed live by singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Matthew Moon.  

 

With poignant stories and musical overture, the lights go up on stage to bring a powerful performance sharing truth, humor, empathy and compassion.

 

We welcome you to participate in the first workshop. Our first one will be focused on those affected by suicide.  We are looking for people to share their stories, volunteer and/or attend the performance.

Thank you for your interest and support.

 

Take care,

 

Jessica
