STATION VOICES

Date: 
Friday, June 3, 2016 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Station Voices will be performing on the corner of Boston and Brady Friday, June 3, 2016 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm . "Give a Dollar, Get a performance": They will be accepting general donations for Youth Services of Tulsa's Street Outreach program.

STATION VOICES is a collection of performance pieces that grew out of ongoing theatre, writing, and performance workshops conducted at Youth Services of Tulsa’s street outreach as a part of Living Arts of Tulsa’s Homeless Project.

These workshops worked with the Tulsa homeless population age 16-24 that are served through “The Station,” a resources day center where young people can get a meal, take a shower, do laundry, see a doctor, use the internet, take GED classes, and get help with many other issues facing them. It’s also just a great comfortable place for these young people to hang out during the day, make friends, and take interesting workshops, from cake decorating to yoga.

In the “Station Voices” workshops, through writing exercises, discussion, and theatre activities, these youth participants were able to explore the many issues facing them, and had the opportunity to express their own viewpoints and opinions. They generated writing and dramatic re-enactments of real-life situations.

The material generated in the workshops faithfully forms the basis for the performance pieces that will be performed by Tulsa community actors in a “Pop-Up Street Theatre” kind of format. These Street performances will be presented during the upcoming June First Friday Art Crawl by the Guthrie Green, as well as a part of Living Arts of Tulsa’s culminating event of the Homeless Project, “7 Stories, 7 Doorways” at the Kerr Warehouse Saturday June 4.
