Homegrown Fellows: Story Circle with Cattywampus Puppet Council

homegrown fellows


The Carpetbag Theatre Inc. along with  members of hip-hop collective, Good Guy Collective, and puppetry and theatre group, Cattywampus Puppet Council, will be facilitating a Story Circle to help gather stories for a collaborative theatre piece they will be writing this winter and performing in fall of 2019. Through hip-hop, puppetry, and dance the resulting collaborative theatre piece will explore the ways in which colonization and slavery continue to perpetuate in our country and culture and the ways in which art can fuel resistance and help build both community and individual power. We'd will be extending an invitation to all story circle participants to audition for the resulting theatre piece, as well as be involved in creating the hip-hop soundtrack and visual art for the show.
