Free Land: Family Stories, Common Ground

This highly interactive and rewarding artist residency guides participants through a creative process parallel to the creation process of Free Land: gathering powerful stories from our family histories, learning the broader social and political context in which they occurred, making the connections to the land we live on and creating original performance pieces that weave it all together. Through interactive creative writing exercises, theater activities, games, group discussions and performance workshops, we will craft our personal stories into hip hop theater performances that gives voice to who we are, where we stand and who we stand with.

Past residency sites have included U.C. Berkeley and Destiny Arts Center.

All residencies can be modified to meet your specific needs.

Residencies can range from:

  • 1 day to 2 weeks
  • small to large groups
  • Junior High to Adult
