Performing Justice Project: The Good in Me/In My Skin
Enacting justice in our daily life is a topic that weaves throughout the creative devising process and the whole of the Performing Justice Project, co-directed by Dr. Megan Alrutz (Theatre & Dance) and Lynn Hoare, MFA, Voices Against Violence. PJP prepares high school students, teachers, and audience members to understand, talk about, and enact gender and racial justice. The script for the 2015 summer production, The Good in Me/In My Skin, reflects the youth’s vision(s) for a more just society and many of the youth’s scenes and monologues speak to future action steps for themselves and the audience. PJP is supported by the Center for Women's & Gender Studies and the Embrey Critical Human Rights Initiative.
