A Collaborative Communties Project

Body of Letters, brings to life the personal accounts and stories of participants by providing them with a framework to use as a vehicle to organize and tell their story-in-motion. Taking inspiration from NPR’s Story Corps, Body of Letters approaches the art of storytelling through the body dynamically moving through space and time.

This is a two-part project that commences with a workshop around which community can gather to explore their personal histories in movement. The final component will be a hybrid (both live and pre-recorded), multi-media performance at SMUSH Gallery that pushes the boundaries of storytelling, and presents a diverse cross section of life in Jersey City, expertly woven into a cohesive tapestry of communal and individual identity.
