From First Generation's performance of fo n' ale. fo n' ale (we must go in Haitian Creole), is a play incorporating dance, music, and seven languages: Kirundi, Nepali, Haitian Creole, Amharik, French, Spanish, and English. fo n' ale is a visual poem that embodies the melancholy of leaving. Seven travelers originating from around the world have left their homelands for different reasons but find themselves traveling the same path. A waking dreamscape in which past, present, and future are interchangeable. The seven young ensemble members, who currently live in Springfield, Massachusetts, originate from Nepal, Haiti, Burundi/Tanzania, Puerto Rico, Ethiopia and the United States.

Mission Statement

MISSION The Performance Project is an arts community of many ages and ancestries that engages young people in artistic training, inter-generational mentoring, leadership development, and community building through the arts.

Description

THE PERFORMANCE PROJECT
The Performance Project began in 2000 as a theater and movement workshop at the Hampshire Jail and House of Corrections in Northampton, MA. We collaborated incarcerated men to create performances based on their personal life experiences to encourage self-reflection and healing.

Our work with youth began in 2008 with First Generation youth program.

FIRST GENERATION
First Generation engages youth in artistic training, inter-generational mentoring, leadership development, social justice and community building through the arts. First Gen members may be the first in their family to grow up in the US, to speak English, to graduate high school, go to college, be openly LGBT+, be an activist, break a silence, among many other firsts....

First Gen youth participants create original multi-lingual physical theater. Our plays have been performed in schools, colleges, theaters, summits and conferences in Western Massachusetts, and at two international theater festivals.

VISUAL ARTS

Visual Art Residencies bring our artistic and community building process to youth who are incarcerated and in treatment.
