We Players on Alcatraz Puppet Partnership Anna Whitehead, MFA Social Practice, 2nd year graduate student Community Partner: We Players, Alcatraz Island San Francisco, California
Joining with We Players in their site-specific performance residency on Alcatraz Island, this partnership project engages at-risk youth, people incarcerated, and those on probation in the Bay Area in the collaborative creation and construction of large-scale puppets and masks for a performance addressing themes of access, isolation, incarceration, justice and redemption. Participants will exchange personal experiences and stories related to project themes while collaborating with residency poets, dancers and actors working together on the culminating, multi-disciplinary, performance piece.
