WINDOWS AND MIRRORS: A STORYTELLING RESIDENCY

This Windows and Mirrors storytelling residency will amplify student voices. Strike Anywhere's approach pairs professional playwrights and actors with students to engage them in crafting and performing a personal story about a pivotal life moment. Students from Elisa DeGregorio's visual arts classes will craft digital stories, to be projected in the theater, will design and build the set, design and run the lights while students from several English classes will write, edit and perform stories live. JKO High School and Strike Anywhere have partnered on many customized residencies with final performances centering around compelling themes such as the water crisis in Flint, MI with Worth of Water, or Farce of Nature, which explored issues of climate change, and Same River which explored fracking and community relationships.

"This is a very special Ensemble and project. It's so adaptable and the pop-up style interviews on the street are an accessible, low-barrier means of interviewing, involving people, and getting a feel for a place. And with the inclusion of Soundpainting workshops and community performers in the show, it's a wraparound engagement process. As a presenting venue, we don't always get to dig into to the relationship between artists and the geographical/social realities of that place that they're coming to."
