SKIRTSAFIRE’S WORLD PREMIERE OF MAKINGS OF A VOICE MOVES ONLINE
While we would have loved to fill a theatre with the live performance of this beautiful play’s world premiere, we are reimagining how to bring the heart of this story into your home, keeping it intimate enough to grab your soul and fill you with stirring music and Dana’s impactful story.
Makings of a Voice is no longer available for viewing.
About the Play
Makings of a Voice is a theatrical song cycle about discovering our individual identity within generational narratives. A personal journey situated somewhere between the past and the present, between motherhood and daughterhood, between music and monologue, this intimate piece follows a messy trajectory into the heart of one woman’s story and provides a compelling argument for why our stories need to be told.
