Great solo performance is a combination of compelling content, skillful use of space, and charismatic, dynamic storytelling. This November, Portlanders will have the chance to see live theater that draws them into the present moment, live storytelling that is extemporaneous, improvised, and deeply personal. These feature-length solo productions take place at Hipbone Studio over a single weekend in November, the 22nd and 23rd, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.

The focus is on local talent, Urban Tellers Kriya Kaping (Friday) and Jeff Burke (Saturday), with the addition of a special artist-in-residence, Denis Gessing from Colorado (both the 22nd and the 23rd). It’s an experience that celebrates storytelling as solo performance. Audiences get up close and personal in the intimate black box theater as the artists delight them with real, true stories.

The Solo Series evolved out of the five-year run of the Singlehandedly Festival. Like the festival, each story in the Solo Series displays the breadth of talent and the rich complexity of each individual performer as they bring their own personal experiences to the stage, collectively creating a beautiful collage about the human experience. The most delicious aspect of the series is that each performer will be presenting her or his story for the first time to a live audience – a world premiere – giving the audience an opportunity to shape each piece with the storytellers. with the storytellers.

    You can’t beat a good story told in person.

    Two lost souls, finding ourselves shivering from the cold, shuffling up east Burnside on a late winter evening, the sun will have gone down hours earlier. Our only solace from the crisp bitterness of daylight savings time, other than the hope for a warm room and some array of concessions, will be the warmth filling our hearts as these performers share their craft with a grateful audience. Here’s hoping we don’t have to gaze longingly in through the window, warm our nose on the glass for a second, and simply shuffle on into the long dark night.

    I long for events like these! Storytelling is the safest form of time travel. These are moments when we get to ride on the backs of a storyteller’s spirit animal. Whether it be cheetah or pegasus, and go on a journey through the time space continuum! Storytelling gives me hazy memories of some ancient life, where we gathered around the fire to share fables. These story’s nourish my soul, like a golden delicious nourishes a tired horse. My girlfriend and I have limited coins in the funtime jar, and would love to dive through some wormholes this weekend.
