Let it be a year of Stories. of personal stories. of yours and mine. of ours. of each others.
I have written a storyteller's oath that I intend to take very seriously this year. It's going to be a year of documenting personal stories, which can be starting points for many exciting things, including immersive performances. Here's the oath and I totally urge you to take the oath and keep to the monthly themes - Document your story and well find a way to perform them.
The Storyteller's oath
So, let's look at some story themes for the coming year. I'm going to be writing with this lens every month. There is no limit to the number f stories/moments that you can pen down. So will you join me in sharing your personal stories? Let's document them and let's find a way to tell them and perform them. Share your story with the #mystoryoath
JUMPY Jan - Moments and events that make you jump, that make your heart skip a beat.
FUNNY Feb - Moments that make you laugh so much that your stomach aches
MIRACLE March - Something unexpected happened to you
ADMIRE April - Things, people and everything you admire and why
MANIC May - Things that drive you crazy
JUICY June - What are you seduced by?
JOKER July - Did you make a fool of yourself?
ANGST August - What bothering you about the world would you want to change to make it better?
SENSORY September - You sensed something. You had a strong gut feeling about this one.
OSCILLATING October - Things that made you consider and reconsider, back and forth, indecisive to decisive, swinging to the extremes
NAUGHTY November - Document some mischief and mayhem. Did you do something crazy and shock the world, shock yourself?
DARING December - You went down a path that no one else took. You dared to do something. Something different.
So, now that we have some themes, let's look at every month with these lenses and see what we come by. Do share your stories with me: perform[at]visualrespiration[dot]com. We'll put some of them up on our blog too.
Alternatively, post it on any social media site with the #mystoryoath and we'll find it :-)
We'll see how we devise an engaging performance out of your stories - with your permission of course.
