I am very excited to have come off a very successful run with projection I designed for a recent performance of Guerrilla Theater Works 3: A New Nation’ by Convergence Theatre and we were also HELEN HAYES RECOMMENDED.
About: A New Nation is the latest performance piece generated through Convergence Theatre’s Guerrilla Theatre Works model, a synthesis of performance art, poetry, interviews and physical theatre. A New Nation probes responses to the immigration crisis in the US and current perceptions of the stranger, amplifying diverse voices to challenge fear and strengthen our sense of home. The journey of an unaccompanied minor, a deportation notice and everyday life in a new land are glimpses of the narratives that move beyond the boundaries of the theatre itself.
Performances are framed by Converging Minds, our community engagement event focused transforming art into action. Some Converging Minds events feature local leaders who offer simple yet effective ways to be an advocate or just more inclusive citizen. Other performances feature an “Open Spaces” engagement providing the opportunity for audience members to connect to other community members to discover ways to become more engaged neighbors and foster dialogue with one another. Combined with the show, Converging Minds becomes the heart of your theatre-going experience.
