The Telling Project works with communities and organizations to produce “Telling,” – an innovative performance in which military veterans and their family members, after interviews and subsequent training and rehearsal, stage the ‘telling’ of their stories for their communities.
Free, but an RSVP is required.
The Telling Project creates opportunities for veterans to speak and their communities to listen. The Telling Project has has performed in 14 cities and 9 states since 2008, putting over 50 veterans and veterans family members on stage to tell their stories of military life to their communities.
The Telling Project is performance, oral history and collective mythologizing to the end of broadening and deepening individual connection to community, nation and the world.
The Telling Project hearkens to the origins of theatre as a ritualized communal conversation, in which experiences which might otherwise threaten societal cohesion become instead vital and engaged elements in individual, communal and national identity.
