Meet the Founder

Hey there Villagers!

So, we’re a little ashamed of ourselves. We cannot believe we have yet to introduce the founder of The Chameleon Village Theatre Company! We know. Shame on us. We’ve gotten around to it, and we would like you to meet the face behind the vision. Believe it or not, The Chameleon Village Theatre Company is not operated by a Godzilla sized, rainbow Chameleon. It’s kind of disappointing, we know; but the founder has a vibrant, rainbow-like personality and that counts for something, right?

Meet our Founder

Josy
“Theatre is a catalyst for the stories and voices of the silent”.

The Chameleon Village was founded by this guy! Well, this gal. Meet the founder, Josy Jones! Quite the theatre enthusiastic, Josy is an actor, director, and playwright who hails from Cleveland, Ohio. Although Josy is not native to Macon, Georgia, she has developed a love for the community and a passion for making Macon the best it can be. Josy has taken her ideology that “Theatre is a catalyst for the stories and voices of the silent” and applied it to her aspirations of giving Macon artists a home for their art to be seen, helping local businesses develop more visibility, and creating a new sense of appreciation for Macon’s underused and underutilized areas. In all of these goals, she believes that Macon has been “silent” long enough and it is time to let its voice be heard loud and clear.

Josy displays a lot of her ideology through writing plays. For many plays, she likes to interview individuals whose voices aren’t being heard. Prior to founding the Chameleon Village,

Cast of The Representative

Josy spent an extensive amount of time interviewing individuals in the Macon area who had been victims of domestic abuse. Those interviews became a full-length play called The Representative that displays the intricately intertwined experiences of victims of domestic abuse and the various struggles they endure. She further involved the community by gathering actors and community members at a local bar for a reading in November of 2014. Some of her other pieces include Irrelevant Notions: A Play about FGC and The Black Commandments (A play about shadeism in the African American community).

When Josy is not doing theatre, you can catch her popping up in various places in Downtown Macon, where she may or may not be dancing shamelessly like a fish out of water.

Adios.

Macon, Where Love is Needed

loveisneeded

Today’s image came from east Macon. It was tweeted a few days ago,

but it deserves a full post because it really summaries the main principle

needed in Macon, love. Love is at the heart of The Chameleon Village Theatre Company’s

mission. Yes, we are a site-specific theatre company, but our vision is much larger than

that. We want Macon to appreciate its talent, its beauty and its growth.

It’s significant that this image came from east Macon, because east Macon is one

of those places that seems to have been forgotten or written off. It’s as if the person

who made it was saying “Love is needed here too. Don’t forget about us”.

This piece is in a place that is underused, underutilized and under-appreciated.

It’s time to take a closer look at what Macon has to offer. It’s time to take a look at

the hidden beauty of this great city. It’s time to open our eyes and see not only

the places that are blossoming, but those places that need love.

Do you agree?

Welcome to the village.


Stay tuned as we turn this city’s under-appreciated landscape into an artistic masterpiece.

Glad to be in the village! Why the chameleon?

Welcome to the village!

One of the main questions we’ve gotten since our launch has been “Why The Chameleon Village? What is that supposed to mean?”

Allow me to clarify so that we can trot in sync.

WHAT WE DO

We are in the business of using site-specific theatre to help build community, provide a venue for artistic exploration, and contribute to an overall appreciation of Macon’s underutilized scenery.


THE CHAMELEON

Yes, it changes colors. Yes, the word “chameleon” is one of those words you let auto-correct handle. Also, some people own them as pets.

None of these points went into the making of the name; nevertheless, we all like fun facts, right?

The chameleon image represents The Chameleon Village Theatre Company’s ability to adapt to our performance spaces and new artistic challenges. Whether it be a new business or an old library, we can adapt to every one.


THE VILLAGE

Village is another way of saying community. One of our main goals as a theatre company is to build connections with artists, businesses, and engage the Macon community. Together, we will remind them why Macon should not be underestimated.


WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME? 

By keeping up with the blog you have access to Chameleon Village audition announcements, media, workshops, new community partnerships, upcoming events and more!

You can also stay connected through our Facebook (TheChameleonVillage) & Twitter (TheChamVilla) pages! Also, feel free to go to our Contact us page to further connect!

Lastly, we will periodically post pictures of places in Macon with beauty that have been overlooked. We chose to use one of those images for our first post! It was taken in Downtown Macon at the terminal station during sunset.

It only takes a new perspective to give something worth. Let’s give them something to look at.
