Any One of Us

 

Any One of Us: Words from Women in Prison is a collection of stories from the raw voices of fierceness and honesty written by the original 15 women combined with writing from women in prisons across the nation moving forward toward healing, understanding, and change with the ultimate goal of using their writing and voices to impact policy, laws and treatment of incarcerated women. Together these writings reveal the deep connection between women in prison and the violence that often brings them there. Because of the subject matter this show is not intended for children.

RECURRING EVENTS

Wed, Mar 20
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Vocal Improv Circle Singing

 

Come join voices in circle as we create improvised music in community. We will create 3- and 4-part songs that have never before been sung, based on motifs suggested by leader Marika Chop and improvisations that arise from the group during singing. This type of vocal sharing heals and transforms as well as strengthens our community. All voices welcome.

Children are welcome at our events–we love inter-generational gatherings! We ask that children come prepared to participate in the singing (yay!) or to sit quietly with a parent; parallel activities for kids are not provided. Thank you!
