Play in a Day: Story Bridge Comes to Corvallis
Story Bridge is an experience of creating community by giving people a safe space to share and listen. It is a theatre and storytelling practice that uses games and guided activities to help individuals tell and act out stories about their lives. It can be transformational work. No acting experience needed, only a desire to create community and build bridges by sharing experiences from our lives.
No memorizing of lines, no scripts, just open, honest sometimes playful glimpses into the lives of regular human beings doing the best they can.
It’s fun! It’s exciting! It’s alive and helps bring people together through understanding and compassion.
We start at 1pm and play, devise, and create until 6pm. After a dinner break, we invite friends, family, and the community to a performance of real stories from our real lives at 7pm on the Majestic Mainstage.
About Story BridgeStory Bridge began over twenty five years ago in a small town in Georgia, a town that was dying. Two thousand people, half black and half white, started sharing their stories and literally saved the community. Planet Money did a podcast about the event, https://www.npr.org/sections/money/2018/05/25/613750683/episode-843-swamp-gravy. Note: There is some language in the podcast that might be objectionable to some people.
Author Jean Houston said, after seeing the results of a Play in a Day Story Bridge event, “I have just witnessed the rebirth of theater.”
