Summer Solo Show
Every summer, Tellin’ Tales puts out a call to well-known solo performers with and without disabilities for original 20-minute performances that revolve around a designated theme. We add set, music, lighting and sound design to bring the performances to life. For the past three years, Tellin’ Tales has invited a different writer from the Live Lit world to share the stage for each of our six performances. Themes have ranged from weddings, baseball and insomnia to Facebook and phobias.
To further our mission of shattering barriers between the disabled and non-disabled worlds, we exclusively invite adult solo performers with disabilities to write and perform their original stories. Connections are made when audiences see that the experiences of people with disabilities are similar to their own. The show is a lively mix of touching and hilarious performances often followed by talk-backs with the audience. To help develop these stories, Tellin’ Tales holds a six-week training workshop. If you are interested in participating in next year’s workshop please contact Tekki.
