A hilarious new play which, as the title suggests, deals with the indomitable ladies whose lives revolve around the often outlandish doings of the local garden club. “GIRLS is a delight because it reflects reality. For every comic characterization onstage you can recall someone in your own life as a douoffstage.” — Chronicle-Telegram.

#Solestories at Venus Theatre, May 30-Jun 23

#Solestories at Venus Theatre, May 30-Jun 23

Collaborative Iterations:
#Solestories
by Renee Calarco

May 30 – June 23, 2019

Renee Calarco has been writing these short dialogues prompted by an image of feet taken on her commute to work.

Location: Venus Theatre.

We will be collaborating with Renee Calarco on her #solestories project. Follow her on instagram and stay tuned to Venus to see how this iteration flows. https://www.instagram.com/reneecal/?hl=en

Every weekday during my commute, I snap a photo of a commuter’s shoes and write a bit of flash fiction based on that photo. What started as a way for me to write every day, no matter what, has turned into a project in its own right. – Calarco

The work is a result of a collaborative iteration. Process is key and therefore so is the experienced artist critical in this way of being. An iteration is never about the final destination, rather about exploration that finds a collective voice in a fire-like response to the situations of the world in a given moment.
