Tell Us Your Story

Memory War Theater initiates many of its projects by conducting oral histories and interviews about personal experiences with specific topics.  We are always seeking community members of diverse backgrounds to participate in interviews and share their stories.

Past topics have included:

  • Mixed/Hybrid Identities
  • People who have been forced to create against their will
  • First memories of violence
  • What family means
  • What it was like to live through a war or major political change
  • Your family’s migration story/story of origin
  • And many other topics……

We are respectful of each person’s comfort level with sharing your story and offer participants several options of participation:

  • online via email or website-text only
  • in-person interview –text only or recorded by video or audio
  • included in our live performances or on our website
  • opportunity to perform live on stage

If you are interested in participating please contact us.  We would love to hear your story.  Please send to or send via our online contact form.

Propose a Project

Memory War Theater is interested in collaborating with other community organizations and groups.  If you have an idea for an interactive theater project, collaboration or a community based arts project we would love to hear from you.  We enjoy meeting with community members who have a creative project idea and figuring out a way to bring it to life.

Past community based projects have included:

Process for proposing a project

Phase 1: Email us a short summary of the proposed project. Memory War staff will respond with information about whether this type of project fits with our mission and vision and if we have the expertise to carry it out.

Phase 2: Meeting with Memory War program staff to discuss logistics of the project and see how we might be able to work together to build the project and what resources we will need to accomplish the project.

Phase 3: Meeting and connecting with other potential program partners, developing a funding strategy for the project, and commencing program planning.


If you are interested in community-based theater, social justice, physical theater and transformational experiences consider volunteering with Memory War Theater.  We are always looking for volunteers to help with artistic consultation, administrative tasks, fundraising, staffing events, interviewing and transcription and documentation.  We consult with all volunteers to make a good match with what each person is interested in learning or doing and your area of expertise.
