Create your own performance piece drawing from your personal life story, and have a blast doing it! This FREE theater workshop is for all seniors and anybody with a disability who has a story to tell.
Led by writer, director, storyteller and performer Tekki Lomnicki, a performer with a disability and the Artistic Director of Tellin’ Tales Theatre. Tellin’ Tales is a theater company dedicated to shattering the barriers between the disabled and non-disabled worlds through the power of personal story.
In this class you will learn how to generate ideas and write your own story using setting, character development, movement and music in a safe nurturing environment. A fun, learning experience in itself, this class could also lead to an invitation to attend a free 6 week acting workshop that culminates in a full performance in a professional theatre.
Senior citizens and people with disabilities are often excluded from participating in the arts because of inaccessible venues. St. Martin’s is a fully accessible venue.
This program is presented by Tellin’ Tales Theatre and Bodies of Work, a program of the Department of Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
Admission is free. Space is limited to 10 participants. To register contact Theresa Pacione at  773 946-7540 or pacionepaz@ameritech.net.
Free Parking Across the Street at Frederick Douglass High School!
