About this event:
WHAT: Victoria Reeves with her solo show “Brassy + Intrepid” heads a group of women storytellers speaking true stories. The theme is strong, independent, creative women finding their own voices, following their own paths and stepping into their power.
SO WHAT: Performing eight-minute true stories will be: Lisa Collen, writer, instructor and producer, who also hosts Inspired! Live Lit on the first Tuesday of the month in Lockport; Lee Melchior, who hosts three shows in the storytelling scene: “Do Not Submit Open Mic” in Edgewater, “Chimera Loft” in Evanston and “The Story Rug” at Evanston Farmers’ Market; Kim Vanbiesbrouck, a singer, dancer, actor and writer, is also a yoga, barre and kickboxing instructor; and RC Riley, a queer warrior woman, writer, performer, and storyteller who began writing as a means of healing after a sexual assault. Reeves’ “Brassy + Intrepid” is a compilation of six coming-of-age stories, woven together with musical and visual transitions. Reeves tells true tales of discovering feminism, surviving as a creative, forging a gypsy-road-show life with her partner and surviving motherhood on a Suzuki TU250X. She has performed at Chimera Loft, Turning Point, Story Lab, This Much is True, Inspired! Live Lit, Fresh Meat and the Evanston Storytelling Festival. The event ends with a CommUnity Dance Party mixed by Turntablist/DJ Johnny Price.
