Welcome to Staging Our Histories

Staging Our Histories is a not-for-profit public history initiative that explores the convergence of history, memory and performance. Our events feature performing artists and filmmakers whose diverse voices and experiences of the past are presented in conversation with each other on the same stage, in front of a live audience. Staging Our Histories’ (SOH) events typically feature 4-8 short performances over the course of one dynamic evening. Pieces are staged back-to-back, punctuated by talk-back sessions with the artists and audience that continue the conversations which emerge from and between each piece.

SOH brings together filmmakers and performing artists of diverse traditions with members of academia and the general public, to offer a space for engagement and dialogue regarding the ways we express our histories beyond the page.
