THEATER OF WITNESS
Theater of Witness is created from the passion and commitment of many people with diverse sets of skills. Together we support the performers who mine their own lives in order to share their life experiences and wisdom, teaching us about love, truth-telling, justice, possibility and peace building. None of this can happen without many hands and hearts.

HOST AN EVENT
Call Teya at: 215 680-0471 for more information.
Invite Teya Sepinuck, Founder and Artistic Director of Theater of Witness, to give the ‘Soul of Story’ presentation – an inspiring multi-media program of films and life stories from her work creating original testimonial theater with people who have lived through trauma, marginalization and/or oppression. This work with survivors of violence, war, prison and resettlement illuminates the healing power of deep listening, giving voice and “finding the medicine” in stories of struggle, injustice and transformation. Teya will speak personally about the power of bearing witness and using personal and collective story to inspire healing, empathy and peace-building both for performers and audiences. It is a beautiful way to bring your friends together for an inspiring evening of stories and film excerpts that will touch people emotionally and stimulate discussion and connections.
