We are founded on the belief that each human being has a unique story of life as a "visitor," when a vital part of who we are and how we experience the world impedes our sense of belonging in the community
around us. Sometimes this feeling is perpetual, causing us to feel like we belong everywhere and nowhere in particular. Our goal is to foster understanding, empathy and human connection through theatre that explores uncommon human experiences. And of course to tell entertaining, compelling stories.
We are thrilled to begin the creation process for our first play – an original documentary piece – that we plan to stage in the fall of 2015. This piece will look at our modern day relationship to our jobs and how the idea of “The American Dream” influences how we see ourselves and others. Inspired by conversations with each other as well as with friends and colleagues, we want to investigate how our job shapes our identity and sense of self, how it shapes how we see and are seen by others, and how it affects our ability to create the rest of our lives.
We are hoping to cast as wide a net as possible for interviews. Our only criteria are that individuals be 18 years of age or older and that they currently reside in the United States. Please let me know if you or anyone you know may be interested in speaking with us by emailing us at PerpetualVisitorsTheatre@gmail.com; we plan to conduct interviews now through the end of March 2015.
Thank you so much for your help! We look forward to sharing more details about this production as it comes together, and to sharing our new website with you in April 2015.
I hope you are staying warm and dry wherever you may be, and I look forward to keeping you updated!
