How do we care for one another? How do we cope with illness, injury, and loss? How do we find the strength to heal? Stories help us grapple with these complex questions.
Join us for a special evening of storytelling (and our very first show at Kingsbury Hall!) featuring true stories told live on stage without notes; about sickness and health, complications and recovery, and the challenges that arise in the providing and receiving of care.
Curated and hosted by Giuliana Serena and Nan Seymour of The Bee.
Presented in partnership with UtahPresents, University of Utah Health’s Resiliency Center, and Program in Medical Ethics and Humanities.
Saturday, January 19th, 2019 @ Kingsbury Hall
7:00PM Doors. 7:30PM Stories.
ACCEPTING STORYTELLER SUBMISSIONS AUGUST 1 - SEPTEMBER 30 2018!
We are seeking folks with a range of experiences and backgrounds to share stories at this show. Do you have a story to tell? We want to hear from you! Do you know someone with a story? Please send them our way!
You don't have to be an experienced storyteller or public speaker to participate in this show; we are experts at encouragement and will support you through the workshopping process to develop your story for the stage. If you have an important story, it would be our privilege to help you tell it.
Those selected will participate in a series of private workshops with Giuliana Serena and Nan Seymour of The Bee in December of 2018 and a rehearsal on stage January 8th of 2019 before performing in front of a live audience January 19th of 2019 at Kingsbury Hall. Exact dates of workshops will be determined once storytellers are selected (based on collective availability).
