I AM YOU Monologues 2012

In March 2012 Stone Belt, in partnership with the Bloomington Playwrights Project, presented the third season of its “I AM YOU,” monologues written and performed by individuals with disabilities.

The evening featured monologues written over the course of the past year by 9 Stone Belt clients under the supervision of Indiana's only registered Drama Therapist and Curriculum Developer, Michelle Davenport. 

I AM YOU provides individuals with disabilities with the opportunity to share their stories and showcase their talents. Participation in a professional theatre production is an exciting chance to demonstrate to the community that all individuals have impactful stories to share, and that all people have artistic skills, dreams and aspirations. Client performers and directors spent 15 weeks working together to craft their monologues and work on the dramatics.

Participants are individuals utilizing Stone Belt services, representing all facets of the agency’s programs, including educational programs, residential life, and community employment; and performers represent all of our service areas, including Bedford, Columbus and Bloomington. The agency is thrilled to have such a broad representation of individuals in the production.

Stone Belt is a not-for-profit organization that provides education and support for individuals with disabilities. Established in 1958, we are the oldest and largest agency of our kind in south central Indiana. We offer educational, residential, employment support and clinical and health services for over 1,300 clients in Monroe, Lawrence, Owen, Bartholomew, and surrounding counties. It is our mission, in partnership with the community, to prepare, empower and support persons with developmental disabilities and their families to participate fully in the life of the community.
