Assistant Director, Creative Content Development Lead
A devised/new play development.
An examination of the history and lived experiences of the people of Hampton Roads in relationship to the themes and narrative of the book of Exodus. The Coastal Virginia Exodus Play is an original play created and developed with the 757/Hampton Roads community that will be shaped and refined with the cast.
Led by The InHEIRitance Project, a national arts organization, the project's playmakers will infuse their experiences into this completely original, hyper-local script about the 7 cities - Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News and Virginia Beach - and their relationships with each other historically, as imagined through the lens of a family gathering.
A final play will premiere at the Virginia Arts Festival in May 2022 at the Attucks Theater.
Invited into the production process as a 'local' artistic collaborator with the primary focus of maintaining the cultural integrity of this newly devised piece.
'Devising' is building a theatrical production through a process where a creative team develops a show collaboratively with each contribution serving the narrative/story/plot as a whole. (ATHE)
