Stories of the Community is a theatre workshop in which members of the public come together to meet each other, explore a variety of topics, and create theatre about those topics.

This year, two teams of participants are making theatre on the topic of “family.”

In the “Distance” team, participants from with diverse national backgrounds, gender identities, and interests come together to think about familial relationships in terms of psychological and physical distance. This team will also collaborate with a group of workshop participants from Singapore.
In the “Changes” team, a diverse group of participants explore issues related to the nature of “masculinity” and the role masculinity plays in society. Building on this starting point, they also think about the unique difficulties men face and the changing nature of family.

On March 22, the final day of the workshop, the approximately 30 workshop participants make a public theatrical presentation about the issues they explored from January through March.
Don’t miss the chance to come to this performance! We aim to make the final presentation a space for everyone who attends to think about these issues along with us.
