SCP Presents: "Our Friends: Liking, Laughter, Longings and Loss"

On May 13th, Story Choreography Projects will debut "Our Friends: Liking, Laughter, Longings and Loss," a movement theater presentation directed by Barrie Barton. This authentic theater performance interweaves personal story, movement, and multimedia, creating a montage of human experiences that are both personal and universal.To be performed at Jubilee! Community, "Our Friends" reveals the multitude of friendship dynamics and life lessons that anchor us in sacrifice and love. The live performance is an invitation for audience members to revisit the stories of the people they have counted as friends in their lives. Theatergoers will walk away with a fresh perspective on friendships and feel nourished by seeing human relationships come to life.“Our friendships vary from lifetime relationships to acquaintances we may see occasionally,” said SCP Artistic Director Barrie Barton. “Friends witness our lives and inform us at a core level who we are, how we cooperate and love, as well as how to say I’m sorry or good-bye.”Tickets are $16; proceeds from the shows will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina—$3 from every ticket sale will benefit the charity’s mission to match children with adult mentors in whom they will gain a role model, a friend, and access to new experiences through which they build higher aspirations for their lives. Tickets are available at the door or in advance through Eventbrite.
