                               Every family tells stories.

When creating "Tales from the Tree" for our graduate reseach project at The City College of New York we heard many stories from all kinds of families. Stories about family experiences, loss, secrets, and parenting.

We feel strongly that immersive, experiential theatre is the bridge that connects very young audiences to the older generations who love them.

Compelled by our own curiosity, we wondered if we could bring a family tree to life. What would it look like? Was that music we hear off in the distance? What is that delicious smell--is someone cooking up a family recipe? Who planted this tree? How are we connected to them? What do we know about our families? How will we remember and be remembered?


We spent two semesters researching, workshopping, performing, interviewing and creating ethnodrama based on our findings.
Now we have the chance to share our work at a national level this summer in New Orleans.
Your support will help us share Family Tree Theatre and we will keep you on our mailing list for future "Tales from the Tree" performances.
 

                                         Thank you!

My graduate research group will be presenting our work at the AATE national conference in New Orleans this summer and we are asking for donations to help our team get to and stay in New Orleans.
We created a piece of immersive intergenerational theatre that we shared with all different kinds of families across NYC.
We then created an ethno-drama based on interviews conducted with participating families and community members.
And now we are thrilled to be able to share our work with other theatre educators!
Our inspiration for all our work was the idea of creating and preserving stories. If you can share or donate and help be a part of this story we would be so grateful.
