Solo Showdown Storytelling & Comedy Workshop

6 Wednesdays, 5pm PT, July 5 - Aug 9, 2023

Is it time to just tell the damn story? The story you know in your bones you were meant to share? Your medicine for the world?

Have you been sitting the story you need to tell for months, years, or decades? Perhaps it’s not really about telling your old story, but embodying your new story?

Solo Showdown is a 6-week LIVE online storytelling & comedy workshop, facilitated by internationally-acclaimed comedian Alicia Dattner. In a group of high-caliber supportive creatives, we’ll discover your story through:

  • Improv games & acting warmups
  • Wild extemporaneous storytelling
  • Juicy writing prompts
  • Alicia’s witchy wisdom

You’ll go from having the seed of an idea – to participating in an exquisite ritual of “seeing and being seen” – a performance of your story that is healing, nourishing, and freeing, for you and all those who witness you.

  • Come for the knock-down, drag-out full self-expression you crave
  • Stay for the creative and personal growth you won’t find anywhere else
  • Leave with a magical 7-minute medicine story you’ll perform at the final show on August 12, 2023
