Take the Mic Episode #7 Playwright and performer Laurie McCants on telling the story you didn't think you would tell
Laurie McCants shares the process of how she created Industrious Angels, a story "about the crafting of stories," which she'll be performing at KO Festival of Performance in Amherst, MA Aug. 3-5. Laurie, the co-founder of the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble , reveals her challenges, surprises, and discoveries in a way that will inspire any woman who has struggled to find her story. (Even if her story is not, like Laurie's, "a solo hand-crafted-story-spinning-shadow-puppet-memory-play-with-music evoking the secret creative lives of women, mother/daughter bloodlines, and the ghost of Emily Dickinson.")
Laurie also tells us something surprising about her experience of public speaking, and offers some great tools to feel more relaxed and grounded on stage.
