We are NOT producing a burlesque show.
Evilyn Sin Claire explains. Here is why...
Reason #5 - We are turning 7 into 7,000,000.
Evilyn, one of the original co-founders of Sinner Saint, has stewarded the professionalism, growth and leadership of this troupe for over eight years. As we lead up to our fall full-length theatrical production, Sinner Saint is working to create a conversation larger than can be had by just our seven members. Painting a picture of what it means to be a woman today requires hundreds and thousands of diverse voices. While our seven stories are important, they are not enough. We need YOUR voices too. Sinner Saint wants to explore the experiences of women, and a burlesque show with just our stories wouldn't suffice. This means reaching outside of our troupe to harvest stories and various forms of performance art.
In order to paint a picture of what it means to be a woman today, we need you.
In order to declare a new legacy about what it means to be a woman, we need you.
We are starting with 7. We will grow to 700 (our Facebook page is already at 608 'likes'!). We'll expand to 7,000. Then set our sites on 7,000,000.
We are not producing a burlesque show because we want 7,000,000 people rising to join our conversation... and we couldn't find a venue big enough to fit all 7,000,000.
This is what our Summer Series is about - creating a local and global conversation, not just a show. The Summer Series productions are three unique community productions spotlighting local artists, and promoting community connection. Sinner Saint is your host for our Summer Series exploring female mythology and archetypes in which we showcase the art, talent, passions and legacy of women in the Pacific Northwest and Seattle area. Expect to see dance, poetry, painting, singing,storytelling, education and advocacy. Get ready to engage with local artists and audiences and start a conversation about how art impacts you. There will even be an opportunity to participate in an auction of local female artists' work! But that is not all! You will also get to see a sneak preview of what Sinner Saint is preparing for our full-length production at Theatre Off Jackson in October 2014.
