Stories of Northern Kentuckians Living with HIV to Be Told
Falcon Theatre will present storytelling project HIVoices as part of the Campbell County Library's 2017 Spotlight Series on Aug. 17 at 7 p.m.
HIVoices is intended to raise awareness and amplify communication between members of our own community who live daily with HIV and the people in their world who too often aren’t fully aware of the illness’s impact on their lives.
The project is a joint effort between Falcon Theatre’s community outreach wing Falcon Takes Flight, the Northern Kentucky Health Department, the Cincinnati Health Network, and AIDS Volunteers of Northern Kentucky.
In 2016, six persons living with HIV from Northern Kentucky were interviewed about the illness and its personal impact. The interviews were transcribed and molded into a series of monologues that will be read by actors.
The stories represent the diverse experiences of those who have fully integrated the disease into their lives. The monologues capture a broad range of moods and emotions as they portray the spirit of those living with HIV.
Admission is free but registration is required. For more information or to register for tickets here.
