The project's purpose is to is to break down walls between socially isolated individuals and their communities through collaborative creative engagement.
The project's vision is to use theater as a medium for social reflection and relationship building.
The project's focus develop self-awareness and communication skills with populations behind visible and invisible social walls such as those created by incarceration, addiction and poverty, through writing and performing.
The project is implemented over the course of 8-10 weeks, which includes group and individual work in writing, experience and performance. Project participants have included a variety of people from behind walls, such as incarcerated and hospitalized peoples and students.
The project culminates in a collaborative performance open to invited audience members.
I participated in a project working with incarcerated men.
