Mention the word secret, then notice:
- Where do your thoughts go?
- What happens to your breathing?
- What happens in your body?
For many reasons, conscious and unconscious, we seem to immediately go to the dark, heavy and repressed. But secrets can also be light, fun, funny and unexpected.
These vast differences and all the subtleties in between are explored in Secrets: Freeing the Hidden Story, a multimedia experience presented by the Asheville-based Community Choreography Projects.
Artistic Director Barrie Barton guides 20 local cast members – many of them with no theatrical background – in this choreographic distillation of personal stories. Through movement, music, film, poetry and the real-life secrets of cast members, the audience will be carried through an evening of comedy and tragedy, hope, humor and healing. Real people telling real stories in a performance guaranteed to touch the secret soul of each of us.
Secrets: Freeing the Hidden Story opens at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville, N.C. June 20, 21 and 22, 2013. Doors open at 7:00 and show time is 7:30. Tickets are $18 general admission. A portion of ticket sales benefits Four Seasons Hospice, a local nonprofit offering end-of-life care and support to patients and their families in Buncombe, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Transylvania, and Swain counties.
