By Melissa and Kate
Have you ever had a moment where someone told you his or her story and you saw the world in new way? Or seen your own experience in someone else’s story and suddenly felt less like a Visitor? We live for these moments.
We are Melissa and Kate, and we started this documentary theatre company to find and tell those uncommon, real stories, and to build a community where we can witness them together.
In our experience, the theatre is a place for connection and truth, and we hope to create a space onstage and online that is rooted in those values. Every two weeks, we’ll put up a new post to share inspirations behind the original works we create, reflect on the role of theatre arts in our community, and start a conversation about the uncommon experiences we all share.
We hope you’ll be readers, but much more than that, we hope you’ll add your voices to the conversation. Sharing your story can change minds and foster connection. So bring your humor and your silliness, your honesty, and most of all, your stories.
The question that started this whole endeavor for us was, “Where in your life do you feel most like a Visitor?”
We can’t think of a better way to start this blog then by asking that question of you. We invite you to leave us a comment below or let us know through Twitter or Facebook where you feel like a Visitor. Let’s get a conversation started.
