The Performance and Disability Project,
presented in partnership with
To the Root Community Discussions and Green Wood Coalition
is a collectively-formed piece of performance art
on the topic of disability and performance,
intended to promote healing and storytelling
through community and performance.
Big thanks to Northumberland Sunrise Rotary for funding!
"It's been a process that has allowed folks in the collective to explore ourselves creatively, gain support from one other, and to stand in our own power to share our stories and experiences on our own terms."
-Facilitator, Alyssa England, To The Root Community Discussions
"I was pleased and hopeful when I heard about the Disability & Performance Project. It fit perfectly with Green Wood's emphasis on social and emotional healing through creative work. What I wasn't prepared for was the courage and commitment that would be demonstrated by the participants who stepped forward to find their own stories, and then share them in such a public way. I'm incredibly proud of each of the players for their brave and honest work, and Alyssa England deserves much respect and gratitude for her vision and the countless hours she has offered to this project."
