A Story Choreography Project
9-Week Workshop and Performance
Bring out the stories within you and transform them into a work of art.
Story Choreography Projects helps individuals dive into a creative and emotional experience by exploring your personal stories and movement and weaving them into performance art.
The experience--both the 9-week workshop and culminating performance--will enrich your life, broaden understanding of your unique history, bring greater compassion to others and honor the extraordinary experiences we collectively share.
Story Choreography Projects is a special workshop offered 1-2x per year by artistic director and facilitator Barrie Barton. Each SCP project has a specific theme. The Spring 2018 theme is "Friendship."
Who Is Story Choreography Projects For?
Anyone can join Story Choreography Projects. Participants must be located in Western North Carolina and able to attend the 9-week workshop, culminating in a performance in downtown Asheville, NC.
How will SCP change YOUR life?
The SCP creative process is designed to harness the unspoken, the hidden, the unshared and the taboo and transform it into the spoken, seen and expressed actions through the container of creativity, performance and community.
Stitching Stories Through Choreography
Stories are written and spoken, but Story Choreographer, Barrie Barton takes stories to the stage. In her presentation, she shares how community members, age 25-70 go spelunking for personal stories and movements around a specific theme and then co-create a performance piece...including choreography and spoken word.
Her presentation reveals the creativity, compassion and courage and ultimate liberation kindled through this process. Barrie reveals participant’s poignant stories from a lifetime secret to a recovering heroine addict. The stories cover the full spectrum of the human condition. Through telling our stories, "We are seen and heard.We belong. We are not alone. We a part of a much larger story."
