Stories from the Helix

Runs Dec 10, 2023

MVT@theVLT is proud to partner with Wordcrafters in Eugene to bring local stories to life

At VLT in the intimate Stage Left

For the past several years, Wordcrafters in Eugene has been coordinating StoryHelix, a collection of local stories, told by local people, about local lives – stories that make us who we are, as individuals and as a community. MVT and Wordcrafters in Eugene will select a cross-section of these stories and bring them life through theatre, music, and dance.

The stories have been transformed into a stage play by Eva Osirus of Sirius Rising, who is also directing the production. The play will also weave together choreography by Steph Young of Fermata Dance Collective and Mary and Dania Sollo of Ballet Folklórico Colibrí, and projections by Traci Crimmins.

Join us for an engaging production of 11 stories from folks in Lane County, both well known and anonymous. Gather at 1pm for a 1:30 performance. Look forward also, to refreshments, community connections, and the honoring of community leaders who have spent their lives creating belonging in Lane County.

We hope you’ll join us on December 10th. To learn more about StoryHelix and how you can add your DNA to our community story, click here.

Tickets are Pay-What-You-Will – $0-$25
