Have you ever wondered what happens behind closed doors in an executive boardroom? How about that dark street corner after 2:00am?
Using these questions as starting points, theater director Melanie St. Ours – who is also an actress and a teacher – is cooking up a long-term theater project to be housed in one of the empty storefronts of the Storefronts Seattle project.
“One Forbidden Thing,” as Melanie’s project is titled, will use community dialogues, story circles, and theater workshops to name places in Pioneer Square that feel unsafe, restricted, or forbidden. Through the process of creating original theater, participants will explore the ways that those forbidden places are tied to the community’s health, identity and future.
One Forbidden Thing is open for all members of the community to join – both actors and non-actors. You can know more about the project and find details on how to participate here.
