WINDOWS AND MIRRORS is a storytelling residency book-ended by two performances. A professional storytelling show kick-starts the residency and features Strike Anywhere performers sharing true stories about pivotal moments in their lives accompanied by live music from SA musicians. Residencies pair a professional playwright and/or actor with a school or community group. The residency focuses on the elements of an engaging story, on solo performance and culminates with every participant performing their own story. A final show highlights a select group of storytellers accompanied by Strike Anywhere musicians. The residency is available for youth grades 6 -12, college students and adults.
