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.”
