Live performance script curated by Brianna Allen, Claudia Haines, Mercedes O’Leary and Jennifer Norton.
“MOMologues” demonstrates how one artist’s social art practice can create a symbiotic relationship for storyteller and performer. Witness personal confessions become communal anthems. The performance and book are inspired by The Momologue Collective, a platform for self-identifying mothers to contribute anonymous and true short-stories about motherhood. The project’s mission is to build community through storytelling and to stimulate new work by artists. Learn more here https://www.momologuecollective.com/
