BreakOUT! Healing Justice Program Kicks Off with Ping Chong + Company Theatre Performance
was recently invited by the Arcus Foundation to partner with Ping Chong + Company
, an internationally acclaimed theater company from New York, to put together our own version of their “Undesirable Elements” project, an oral history theater series that uses the voices of real people to explore issues of identity and difference.
After a lot of deliberation (How do we tell our stories from a place of power? Who gets to hear our stories? How will we use this in our campaigns? Who are these people from New York anyway??)
, members and organizers at BreakOUT!
decided to take on the task.
Now, after a week of workshops, rehearsals, games, and scripting, we are happy we did!BreakOUT!
