When Stories Collide: Tools to Make Stories and Songs More Resonant


The Wyo Theater (Sheridan, WY) asked the Guy Mendilow Ensemble to lead a songwriting/storytelling residency at the WY Girls School, a therapeutic and educational facility for the treatment of court-ordered “delinquent” girls between the ages of 12-21. The residency purpose was to arm these courageous young people with techniques and tools to make their stories resonate with others, including adults who might ordinarily dismiss them. This is the result.
