In performances, volunteers from the audience share what’s important in their lives — often related to important social issues that affect us. On the spot, actors then portray the heart of what they heard using music, movement, and dialogue. Our events create a respectful atmosphere where every voice can be heard and any story told — however ordinary or extraordinary, difficult, or joyful.
