in Introduction by

Confessions of a Menopausal Femme Fatal is the one-woman show experience by Satori Shakoor happening July 21 – 23 at Detroit Public Theatre. Satori comes back to Detroit is Different to open up about her show and much more. We discuss the Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers and the role storytelling plays in society, civilization, and life.

Satori Shakoor, founder of The Secret Society Of Twisted Storytellers® holds nothing back in her solo, standup storytelling concert. Satori’s riveting performance reflects on 12 years of her journey through the change in life. Wrought with twists and turns, Satori discovers early on that change comes at a very high price. She must confront and overcome a dark secret from her past. As Satori confesses her crime and owns it, she finds freedom and the grace to be fully ALIVE. Confessions of a Menopausal Femme Fatale is a mood-swinging, hot flash of emotion, told through music, song, and in Satori’s unique style. In a jaw-dropping, taboo-busting, drop-the-mic performance, her story will leave audiences giddy with laughter, moved to tears, breathless, and cheering in triumph.

Two million women enter menopause every year. It’s shocking that no one is talking to them, with the exception of drug companies, who focus mainly on alleviating physical symptoms. Confessions of a Menopausal Femme Fatale speaks to a hungry woman over 45 who has to hear stories that more fully represent their experiences. Confessions will encourage women to break the silence, end the shame, and inspire conversations that are uplifting, informative, thought-provoking, and supportive. Come out. Share stories. Celebrate this rite of passage called menopause, “the change of life!”

What began as a journey engaging hip-hop audiences, has grown into a career as a marketing consultant. As business people have seen my work, I was propositioned many times to provide graphic design, photography, videography, event planning, website development, and social media campaigning. These initial business contracts inspired me to build Creative Differences Marketing. I’ve balanced my entrepreneurial experience with formal education from Walsh College of Business and Accountancy. My degree in Marketing serves me well in understanding many of the formal, universal, and theoretical marketing approaches used in corporate environments.Formulating this business model has been anchored by the success of my BLOG ‘Detroit is Different.’ I create all content for Detroit is Different. This serves as a prototype of the ways I can design events, websites, graphics, music, podcasts, social media campaigns, and e-mail campaigns. ‘Detroit is Different’ focuses on the people and places of Detroit that add to the culture. Through these people and places, themes are driven. These themes will partner with, sponsor, and advertise for businesses and organizations using this innovative multilevel marketing approach.
