“One of the first things that impressed me about Brooklyn Boulders was the sense of community. I find it inspirational, and, during my residency, I am going use it as a muse to develop a short play. In order to get a sense of the diversity and the individuals that make Brooklyn Boulders unique, I need to speak to as many members as possible. From these interviews I’ll develop a fictional play, which I will write while in one of the co-working spaces, and the play will be performed for the community in January.
You – yes, you – are what makes this community special and a part of the inspiration for this piece. I want to learn more about you. We’ll chat about what drew you to climbing, how it makes you feel, and, perhaps, share some stories of days on the wall. You don’t have to prepare anything. Just bring yourself.”
Say hi and chat with Robin at BKB Queensbridge during the following times to be a part of her project:
- November 3, 2-5PM

I believe that stories are a type of magic. Through them we explore different worlds, new perspectives, and expanded possibilities.
You can also email her at [email protected] to set up a time or if you’re interested in being part of the performance itself!
