Sundown Collaborative Theatre is now accepting submissions for…
Body Stories (a working title)
For the second installment in Sundown Collaborative Theatre’s, Stories: A Working Title series, we are looking for body stories.
We each have a unique body that comes with its own unique experiences.
We want to create an art showcase that tells as many stories, about as many different bodies, as possible. To achieve this goal, we are reaching out to you to tell us a story about life in your body.
This story could be about your body’s size, gender, race; about your body’s chronic pain or illness; about how you treat your body; about how others treat your body; about the expectations you, or others, have about your body; about a journey (medical, physical, or emotional) you have taken with your body; about the unique challenges of what it means to navigate life in your particular body… or any other aspect of your body that impacts your life.
We want stories that uplift us, that make us cry, that make us angry, that make us hope, that make us understand.
Sundown Collaborative Theatre is honored by each and every story shared and by the opportunity to create this project with the community. All stories will be kept anonymous unless otherwise requested.
Note: don’t worry about crafting a polished, finished piece — or even a coherent narrative! These stories will be taken and workshopped into various art forms and storytelling. Some may be acted scenes or monologues, some told through movement, dance, music, visual art, or whichever medium fits best, depending on our cast of artists.
~*~We will be accepting stories until the end of May! ~*~
There are a few ways to share your story:
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Leave a voicemail at 682-615-2033
- Or fill out the Google form!
If you wish, you may leave your name and contact information (we will only reach out if we have questions or would like permission to use your story in a particular way).
Please reach out to the email above with any questions you may have.
We can not promise to use every story but we will do our best to weave in as many as possible.
We look forward to hearing your story.
