Full Disclosure is an opportunity for Storytellers to share true stories from their lives in a casual event that will include storytelling, live music and projections. Modeled after other popular storytelling events like “The Moth” and “Mortified Nation”, each evening will be curated by a different producer with a different topic, which will ensure variety, diversity and rotating formats. Each evening is sure to amuse, surprise and emotionally move audience members.
This production of Full Disclosure is titled "Origins". This time around we will be presenting stories about 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation North Americans from all ethnic origins. 1st generation Americans typically have the challenge of dealing with parents from the “old” country. There is a level of culture shock that these parents deal with in different ways. Sometimes they embrace the new American ways and sometimes they oppose them. 1st generation children quickly become the family translator, arbitrator, and emissary. It is an odd position for a child to be in. The parent/child role is flipped and some very interesting situations can occur. 2nd and 3rd generation Americans face different issues. In some cases they find their cultural heritage a footnote in their family history. There is the great aunt, uncle or grandparent that is the last connection to a world they only heard about in stories. And so, it is those stories that will be presented by our storytellers.  Among the storytellers will be....Carlos Juarez, Susan Franzblau, Gloria De Leon, and Haydee Berrington.
