Often times, a regional theatre or University will have me in residence, doing a variety of activities in order to help enhance and empower the community or communities that they represent.
Sometimes, this may take the shape of me working with a select group of participants to develop an original piece of theatre that uniquely reflects their community. Other times I’m invited to speak or perform as a way to spark the creative process within the institution. In the case of this video, I was invited to the Bristol Riverside Theatre for four one week seasons throughout the year. My purpose was to help inspire and teach young people, as well as bridge the gap between old and young and between different cultures and classes within the town of Bristol, Pennsylvania. This clip features me connecting with an amazing group of high school students in Camden, New jersey. It was organized as part of the Bristol Residency.
