Speak Truth Series: The Space in Between

  • 2831 West Lawrence Avenue Chicago, IL, 60625 United States (map)

Speaking Truths Series is not just a storytelling show; it serves larger purposes, such as connecting stories with larger ideas in storytelling such as the meaning of "truth," the public vs. private tales, the universal vs. the particular, identity, power, shame, trauma, and vulnerability, just to name a few.

Our first show will be on Thursday March 7 at National Cambodian Heritage Museum and Killing Fields Memorial.

The show starts at 7:30pm.
$5 suggested donation, but we won't turn anyone away.

The theme: The Space In Between.

The lineup includes Niki Gee, Nicklin Heap, Arlene Malinowski, Isabelle Rizo, Resham Sarkar, Ryan Viloria, and KJ Whitehead.

What do we share in common and how do we differ from one another? What connects us and what separates us? Can you assume from looking at them at first sight? What does "the space in between" mean to them then?

We will be using this term to connect these tellers' experiences and weave them through the entire show.

And imagine the location of our show, National Cambodian Heritage Museum, as part of the larger stories we have to tell in this series.

If storytelling is about remembering and community building, what could be more significant than remembering stories about survival and resilience of a community of people from another land and witnessing the stories of their thriving on this land?
