You know that Monkeyhouse loves you, yes?
Do you know why?
One of the reasons is that YOU have so much to say. Yes. Even when you don’t feel you do. Even when you’re wondering if you get it. Even if we’ve never spoken. Monkeyhouse values YOUR contribution.
Whether you’ve been part of the Monkeyhouse community that has experienced this first hand or are new to the conversation, your voice – be it in asking questions, giving feedback, or simply speaking your passion – is a crucial part of where our work comes from and where it goes. It’s what Moves us. And Motivates us. And Connects.
And with the Against the Odds Sporks, we look to extend discussions about the work you’ll see on stage into larger conversations of what it means to tell one’s tale in a time when the modes of story telling are constantly evolving, shifting, and adapting.
Against the Odds has, at it’s core, the story of Monkeyhouse’s first decade of evolution, finding it’s way as a small non-profit that remains staunchly dedicated to the missions of “Meaning though Movement” and “Community through Choreograhpy.” In a larger sense, however, this Moving Smorgasbord of a festival is interested in motivating more conversation about sustainability, language and telling stories.
More than a talkback or simply a Q&A, we hope you’ll be enticed to stay and engage in these moderated conversations because we know you have a lot to say - And we can’t wait to hear it!
