After the past few weeks, I have to say, I am blessed with some pretty cool people and experiences in my life. I was reminded of that this past weekend, when I attended the Realwheels #WheelVoices Rehearsal with Erica Hargreave.
Realwheels is a theatre production company, focused on producing Shows that deepens the audience’s understanding of the disability experience. Currently they are working on #WheelVoices, which is a multimedia theatrical performance, in which a number of artists with disabilities are sharing tales from their lives, through story, rap, song, poetry, and dance. The two performances are on Saturday May 11th, 2013, and there are still a few tickets left, if anyone wishes to attend. I have to say, being invited to observe the process has been pretty incredible. We’ve loved getting to know the talented artists.
Realizing that through the #WheelVoices performance we were only capturing a small glimpse of these artists’ stories, we wanted more. So with the release of our friends, Katrina German and Dale Zak’s, new app, One Story, we went armed with our smartphones to this past weekends rehearsal to capture more of the story from the #WheelVoices participants.
One Story is a smartphone app designed to create mini-docs that allow people to share their personal stories. When we asked Luisa Bridgman if she would like to do a #OneStory interview with us, we would have never guessed in our wildest dreams, the story she was about to tell us.
And here is the evidence of her tale …
So very inspiring! Thanks Luisa!
So, what’s your story?
