CoronaVox: Tales from the Front
“Corona” –> the “halo” that appears under electron microscopic examination of the COVID-19 virus
“Vox” –> Latin for “voice”
“CoronaVox” –> Phamaly’s original project highlighting the stories of diverse, real-life Coloradoans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the style of Phamaly’s past “Vox Phamalia” programs, CoronaVox: Tales from the Front will be a compilation of theatrical pieces created by Phamaly writers and actors, and based on fellow community members and their unique experiences during COVID-19, particularly “essential workers” who have been the unsung heroes of the pandemic: a health care worker, custodian, public safety officer, food preparer, caregiver, and more. In classic Phamaly fashion, the stories will come to life with vitality, respect, humor, and heart, demonstrating that even during the darkest of times, we can find light in human connection and storytelling.
CoronaVox will be presented in virtual format in May, 2021, with the possibility of a live performance (dependent on COVID-19).
