Mission Statement

MISSION The Performance Project is an community of many ages and ancestries that engages young people in artistic training, intergenerational 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 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 are performed in schools, colleges, theaters, social justice conferences, and at two international theater festivals.
