Beneath the Clouds: The Art of Words and VulnerabilityBeneath the Clouds: The Art of Words and Vulnerability

The Robin Theatre
1105 S Washington Ave
Lansing, MI  48910 Map

Written and performed by--- Bee Queener & Rose Budd
With Music by--- Ryan Di Louka
Featuring a special-guest performance by---- Nancy C. DeJoy
And Acro Yoga Performed by---- Philip Raymond II & Kay Jay Dee

Please join us for the first producton of "Beneath the Clouds: The Art of Words and Vulnerability", a show written to encompass our journey of learning to use writing as a source of healing, and movement as a tool to cultivate growth within ourselves and our communities. We strongly believe in the importance of storytelling- in whatever form that may be for each of us- in order to process our own experiences and find meaning in them as we move onward with our lives. For us, we have found that through writing this show. We hope that in exposing our raw words, we may universalize some of our experiences that often lead us to feeling isolated. "Beneath the Clouds" signifies our capacity for new insight, and reminds us that there is always room to stear ourselves into a direction that allows us more space to grow, and more forgiving soil to plant our roots.

The link for online ticket sales --> www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3137215
You can also purchase tickets directly through Bee and Rose very soon!

Proceeds from ticket sales and donations will benefit the MSU Sidewalk Poetry Project: givingto.msu.edu/crowdpower/sidewalk-poetry

We encourage you to bring canned goods to the show for a food donation drive. Those who bring 4 or more canned goods will be entered in a raffle to win a super special prize (TBD)!

Doors open at 2:30pm.
