Letters to Myself: Queer & Trans Digital Monologues
Project Description Three youth and three senior theatre artists will perform a digitally recorded monologue as a part of Culture Days on October 23rd. The monologues will be based off of “Letters to Myself”. Youth will write a letter to their “future self”, including a question, request, and a wish. The senior artists will also write a letter to their “past self” with the same prompts. The monologues will center around reading and responding to the received letter. Participants will receive coaching on writing, monologue work, digital creation, and performing through one-on-one sessions over Zoom. The monologues will be collected and posted as a digital recording on the Culture Days website to be shared with friends, family, or collaborators. Duration: October 1st- October 23rd How to Sign Up: Email Molly at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Letters to Myself” and include your name, pronouns, and a little bit about yourself (any theatre experience, why you’re interested, etc).
This event is free.
