A show that explores a wide breadth of human emotion is coming to the Kimmel Center. PostSecret: Unheard Voices is a display that touches on many facets of life, exploring notions of fear, ambition, failure, and confession. An auditory and visual experience will be created through projected images and videos, as well as three actors that will guide the audience through a crowd-sourced narrative. A variety of the sexual, sad, funny, and contentious postcards that have made PostSecret.com so popular will be featured.
PostSecret is an ongoing community mail project that was created in 2005 by Frank Warren. The concept revolves around people mailing their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard, and those snippets of secrecy are then posted to the PostSecret website or published in PostSecret’s books or exhibits. To date, half a million anonymous confessions have been submitted and 5 bestselling books have been published. Now the voices that have made the project so popular will come to life in an embracing and far-reaching examination of what it means to be human and how we are often not alone in our struggles and experiences.
