What is a one woman show?
Writing my solo show did not begin with me writing things down on a piece of paper.
It began when I realized that the way that I speak is writing. The way I see the world is my story. Speaking in the first person about your deepest joys, fears, triumphs to people who love and celebrate your journey is where I began telling my story. And eventually where I learned what I was capable of and the power I had to change the fabric of my own life.
It began at a birthday party at my home with all the ingredients neccessary for a self-love journey: Ben & Jerrys, prosecco, a chocolate tort with raspberry filling and a small group of women who I admired deeply and longed to learn from.
That birthday celebration in my tiny Harlem studio was where my first storytelling circle happened. It was where I learned that speaking of things that matter to you to people who make you feel safe; who live fearlessly in their own powerful vulnerability is how I write. I learned that honoring my journey by giving voice to the highs and lows, memories and fantasies of this thing called life was WRITING myself into being. It was where I learned that my story, my voice mattered; that I had the ability to edit that story, weave my pain into light, my loves into magic and reframe things that no longer served me.
Telling your story is some powerful juju for living your best life.
