Rise: The Isolation Project

Presented by Near West Theatre at Online/Virtual Space

Oct 10 - 18 2020
Rise: The Isolation Project

An original writing and performance project for youth, by youth, exploring the impact of coronavirus and Black Lives Matter in their lives.

The program offered a unique opportunity to unite NWT youth participants from across past programming and shows to share their stories, their hopes, and their experiences. Together, they developed this piece.

Participants worked with local teaching artists to create original scripts and music in hopes to connect, support, and inspire one another and our community. The final project culminates in October for a STREAMED performance that is NWT’s Fall Youth Production.
