A new type of theatrical production is coming to Kangaroo Island and Country Arts SA needs you to go on stage to tell your story in front of an audience of your contemporaries.
Barefaced Stories is a modern type of storytelling that can elevate those voices that might not easily find a microphone - real people, not just comedians or celebrities.
This live show and local workshop series aims to uncover local stories as well as teach people the art of storytelling.
At Barefaced Stories, the audience will see real people from their own community take to the stage armed only with a true-life tale.
They are honest, raw, vulnerable, wear their bloody, beating heart on their sleeve, and are some of the bravest folk you'll meet.
These are the folk Barefaced founder/comedian/ABC presenter Andrea Gibbs is looking for on Kangaroo Island.
We are calling out for people to attend workshops in Nov to then present their story at the performance of Barefaced Stories on Kangaroo Island at the end of November.
The KI workshops are Friday, Nov. 5 from 6pm to 9.30pm and then Saturday, Nov, 6 from 9am to 12.30pm. The theme for the workshops is "Now or Never".
Andrea wants locals to share their stories with each other by going on stage.
"When we hear other people's stories, we begin to think of the world in different ways," she said.
"Stories are what our lives are made up of, how we remember people, and they make us feel a little less alone in the world.
"We can't always choose the stories we have in our lives, but if we take a risk and show that we're human and vulnerable then that's where the best stories lie."
Country Arts SA looking for real Kangaroo Island people to tell an authentic, true-life tale of their own.
