Hindsight is 2020: New Project Survey
The Kraay sisters are collaborating for the first time on a new project, a play that will examine the effects of stress on the body, women's bodies in particular, in comparison with the effects of stress on our planet, stress caused by humans in particular. For this survey, we are most interested in how your body has been physically affected by stress in recent years, most especially since 2016, but all answers are welcome. These may be stressors caused by world concerns like increasingly agitated global politics and climate change, stressors caused in your community by the housing crisis and economic struggle, by your personal life, work life, interior life, factors related to gender, race, sexual or cultural identity -- ANY PRESSURES that have impacted your mental, emotional and physical well being.
All answers are anonymous but you are welcome to add your name if you'd like to be contacted further or receive some sort of credit for any contributions that affect the play we create. We are most interested in answers from individuals who identify as womenx, non-binary, transgender or gender non-conforming but if you do not fit into those categories and would really like to contribute, we welcome your answers as well. Answers can be as in-depth or quick as you'd like. You don't have to answer all the questions, but we appreciate your input toward any of these topics.
Thank you for your insights! Your responses may or may not be used to inform the direction of the play. At present we are not planning to use exact quotations, words or phrases, but by posting answers, know that your ideas, experiences and words may be used in this new play in some way. If you want to share your stories but don't want your words or experiences used in this play, please note that at the bottom.
If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Heidi at heidikraay (at) gmail (dot) com.
