|Shackleton’s Antarctic Nightmare: The 1914 Voyage of The Endurance is the gripping, heart-breaking, true story of British explorer, Ernest Shackleton, and the Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914. Shackleton’s dream of being the first to cross the Antarctic continent on foot became a nightmare when his valiant ship, the Endurance, was crushed in the pack-ice of the Weddell Sea. The story of how he and the twenty-seven men of the expedition survived on the ice and eventually came to safety is an epic tale of hardship and suffering; of courage, determination and fortitude.

Are you interested in learning how to perform personal stories?
Starting January 8th for a four-week session, producer-director- performer Shay Knorr of Solo Speak, will be giving a personal story performance workshop called “First Speak” through The Nature of Words in Bend, Oregon. Participants will create a 10-12 minute personal story, with coaching on structure, intent, conflict, resolution, editing and performance skills. The stories will be performed in a group showcase called “The First Speak Sessions”.
Participants must be available to attend all the collaborative sessions; be open to group feedback and suggestions from the coach; be willing to perform in front of an audience and be enthusiastic in promoting First Speak by inviting friends and family to the showcase performance.
Storytelling is a powerful art form that can heal the performer as well as the listener. In these times of electronic communication, a live person on a stage sharing their personal experience out loud can be a life transforming event.
