SONGS STUCK

IN MY BODY

In this 45-min romp through dance, storytelling and song, Sarah Chien excavates the "childhood crap" rattling around in her head and her mom's midwestern basement. At once comedic and deeply personal, "Songs" sorts through the capitalist excess, gender socialization and family heritage that we accumulate on our way to making sense of who we are. 

A show meant for all audiences, Songs Stuck in My Body reminds each of us that our story is already worth telling, and that we can be simultaneously compassionate and critical as we sort through the raw material of our lives.

 

We invite you to join us on this journey,

and bring your baggage along!

 

REACTIONS & PRESS

"In a particularly wonderful moment, Chien balances a set of silver salt and pepper shakers in her palms...while telling a story about simultaneously cringing at her past and embracing it for who it makes her today."
