Event Details

Moving Stories: New play development and the process of generating stories for the stage

Stories give meaning to our lives.  They give shape to our pasts and generate space for our futures.  When stories are brought to the stage they provide us with a window into the complexities and beauty of our lives.  On March 24, we explore ways that dramaturgs, directors, and actors bring stories to the stage.  On March 31, we hear about it from the playwrights’ vantage point in a discussion with all PIP Playwrights moderated by the Dramatist’s Guild.

About Athena Project

Athena Project is a professional group of artists dedicated to supporting and expanding women’s artistic contributions to the Denver stage and the wider community.  Athena envisions a world where women’s voices are powerfully expressed and recognized for artistic merit in the community.  Athena Project’s mission is to empower women and strengthen the Denver community through developing and showcasing women and girls’ artistic contributions, while inviting new audiences into the creative process.  Each Spring, Athena Project produces an Arts Festival that includes theatre, dance and music highlighting the contributions of women artists. In the Fall, we produce a Premiere Production which is selected from one of the plays workshopped during the Festival. Girls Create, is our summer intensive where we highlight various art forms in a week long camp culminating in a final performance to be shared with friends, family, and the public.  This program empowers girls to lead and effect change in themselves and others through creative learning.  Rounding out our annual events are Pop Up music, dance, fashion and theatre performances around the city as well as Visual Art Shows.
