We're sorry to say goodbye for now! The pandemic continues to present massive challenges to live theatre. Stay safe, and we hope to connect with you in the future.
In the meantime, you can still join The Commons to learn about free, upcoming programming, including coffee discussions, play readings, book club, and more.
Please join us in welcoming Lizzy Guerra as we expand our team and move to a Co-Artistic Director leadership model.
Lizzy is a theatre artist and actor born in Cuba and raised in Miami, Florida. She has a degree in theatre from Florida State University with focuses in performance, writing, and directing as well as a minor in Spanish literature. She has been acting and performing from a very young age and quickly found her home on stage and studying theatre at Florida State introduced her to a love of devising and creating art from scratch. As a storyteller and activist, her goal is to tell important stories that don't just explore the narratives of underrepresented individuals and social issues, but bring light to the powerful and vulnerable stories of strong women.
Follow @thekaleidoscapes on instagram for a interview with Lizzy and to learn more about the changes we're making at The Kaleidoscapes.
Place of Significance
We give to you this offering for a moment of reflection. Grab a quiet and comfortable place to watch, listen, and follow along.
Let this guided moment fuel you into your work, a creative process, or writing session. A Place of Significance can be a starting-off place for a story or movement piece, a song or a tune. If you feel inspired to create after this experience, please share with us what you've made.
Shot at 16°F in Elburn, Illinois with COVID guidelines in place. Content from Emilie Winter and video from Claire Allegra Taylor. Open Captions available. Dec. 2020.
[Video Description: Emilie Winter, dressed in a purple beanie and brightly colored jacket and scarf, sits on a pile of old logs, lightly covered with mushrooms, in a field with a few bare trees nearby. It is snowing lightly and you can see her breath. Emilie talks directly to the camera for the majority of the video, and there are a few cut aways to close up shots of the mushrooms, trees, and Emilie in meditation. The title slide reads "A Place of Significance: a guided creative meditation with Emilie Winter" and the credits slide reads "For more information visit www.thekaleidoscapes.org"]
We are actively searching for schools to partner with for the 2021-2022 academic year. Story Guides is a mentorship program for youth aged 7-13, designed to help develop strong storytelling skills, while simultaneously learning about surrounding local ecosystems. Know a middle school teacher or principal who would be interested in partnering with us to provide virtual enrichment to the classroom? We'd love to get connected: email@example.com
