Red Thread Theater, 2008

The Story Owners Collective formed after an audition in July 2008, which launched Julie Rosier’s experimental performance project in collective autobiography. The Collective premiered their first play, The Red Thread: Interwoven Performance Portraits in November 2008 and received a rousing public response. The group has evolved out of the courageous creativity of its four Detroit members, Cara Graninger, Peter Putnam, Julie Rosier and Ce’Ann Yates. Their work weaved through real life and fictional worlds, using story to draw out the vibrant humanity in each of us.
