In a world filled with media distractions and consumer demands are we moving away from the day to day need to connect as humans? Are we losing our sense of humanity and our ability to empathize with the people around us?
Urban Stories Theatre is a place to explore humanity and social justice through the arts with a focus on performance based writing: plays, spoken word, storytelling, movement and monologues.
-We would do this by using a mentorship model in writing, directing and acting.
-We will also collaborate with local community groups using storytelling and play creation workshops to tell their stories in their words.
Urban Stories Theatre Mandate
Our focus at Urban Stories Theatre is to support local playwrights writing about social justice and humanity issues by nurturing their ideas from first draft to finished production. The company consists of local artists who participate in productions and workshops. Budding actors, directors, stage managers and designers are encouraged to share their ideas by becoming part of the team on a show by show basis.
To give local artists a voice in creating theatre that tells stories about real life.
