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."
