ArtLOUD!: Artistic Adaptations of the True Stories of Our Community
Poems . Stories . Music . Dance . Art .
In January 2017, we staged the inaugural production of ArtLOUD! to a sold-out crowd. ArtLOUD!: Stories of Loss and Found was an epic collaborative experience between 39 artists, dancers, musicians, writers, actors, and community members whose stories we were honored to tell on stage.
We told the story of an artist who left Sudan and the loss of freedom that sent him packing. We told stories of memory loss, a suitcase with quite the travel history, the loss of the will to live (thank you, mountain hiking), a final goodbye to a little boy's cowboy hat, and the many beautiful things FOUND in the context of loss.
