Storytelling to Celebrate Foolishness
Friday, April 1st at 6 p.m.
Open Door Tea Room
SheSpeak will present “An Evening of Collaborative Storytelling” in their latest “on the spot” program of short theater pieces on Friday, April 1st at 6 p.m. at Open Door Tea Room, 3552 Main Street, Stratford at Paradise Green.
Using the April Fool’s date to celebrate foolishness as an inspiration, the group will create short theater pieces inspired by the stories shared by those in attendance.
SheSpeak is a free-form approach to theater in that the group does not have prepared scripts or prior rehearsals when they present a program. Ten writers, 10 performers and 10 storytellers randomly selected from the audience pair up at the start of the evening. They work in small groups to create short works loosely scripted from the discussion among the writer, storyteller and actors and then perform them that evening.
SheSpeak is a diverse group of women artists including writers, actors, directors and producers with a mission to create a community of women connecting through the arts and celebrating women’s voices, stories and point of view.
The group has hosted several performances over the past few years and will present their unique format as part of New Haven’s International Festival of Arts & Ideas in June.
