Welcome

 

TO THE MOTHER LINE STORY PROJECT

 

 

 

The Mother Line Story Project is... 

A STORYTELLING COLLECTIVE AND INCUBATOR FOR FEMALE EXPRESSION. THE PROJECT BRINGS TOGETHER GENERATIONS OF pERMORMERS TO TELL THE STORIES OF THEIR MATERNAL ANCESTORS THROUGH THE CREATION OF NEW, SELF-DEVISED WORK.

PARTICIPANTS WRITE AND PERFORM TWO MINUTE MONOLOGUES IN THE FIRST PERSON VOICE OF THEIR MOTHER, OR HER MOTHER, OR HER MOTHER'S MOTHER ETC... THUS EXPLORING THEIR MOTHER LINE. THE STORIES ARE THEN SHARED THROUGH OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL, PODCAST, AND LIVE PERFORMANCES.  

BY AMPLIFYING WOMEN’S VOICES, PAST AND PRESENT, WE AIM TO FOSTER ARTISTS' CONNECTIONS TO THEIR OWN CREATIVITY AS WELL AS BUILD AN ENVIRONMENT WHICH CONTINUOUSLY SUPPORTS AND RENEWS THAT CREATIVITY.

How it works

Our process starts with 3 workshops. Participants are given prompts in advance. They search their memories or call their mothers. They write. They share their drafts and collaborate to find what exciting theatrical potential each piece brings.

We discuss. We refine. We build an Ensemble.

From there, we rehearse in small groups, tech, and perform. In your space, with your group, collaborating with a Director.
