taught by Tekki Lomnicki

Create your own performance piece drawing from your personal life story—and have a blast doing it. This six-week class is for anybody with a disability who wants to tell their story. You will learn how to nurture your idea or work-in-progress using setting, character development, point of view, movement and music in a safe, nurturing environment. The workshop will culminate in a fully produced show in April.

What I liked most about this class is that no acting experience was required. I did not have any, but my piece came alive in a few weeks. I felt supported and understood throughout the creation of my work. There is healing in storytelling.

Tekki Lomnicki is a masterful storyteller! The opportunity to work with her, with other aspiring disabled performers, and to produce crip culture and community was an amazing experience for me. It was fun, meaningful, and I looked forward to every session.
