No Strangers Here Today Artist Residency


Interaction conversations related to:

  • • research into art • traveling to memory places • history of Underground Railroad • re-claiming family history and ancestral lineage • rehearsal process • poetic narrative • collaborative practices •
  • Add a Residency

    A teaching residency expands the ideas inside the performance work academically and creatively. The interdisciplinary approach encourages students to dialogue, imagine, conceptualize, and integrate their personal history and intuitive process with current art/academic goals.

    This 4-minute trailer was shot on location at Lewis and Clark College, in rehearsal for the 2013 Convocation of Students / Graduate School of Education & Counseling.

    A residency can be:
    • an open rehearsal • lecture and dialogue • week-long residence • single workshops •

    Classes and workshops can be discipline-specific and/or interdisciplinary and collaborative. We work with you to design an original, relevant workshop and residency. As Jo Parker, Professor of English at Saint Joseph's College notes here:
