The Radical Joy Project

Freeing the Creative Spirit
April 08 - 09, 2021

This event occurred as part of the 20/21 Theater Department season. This is an archived view.

A theatrical project confronting our past, breathing into our present moment and envisioning our future.

20/21 Theater Department

A unique exploration of how music, theater and movement can be tools for radicalizing the imagination and freeing the creative spirit within. A three-part remote performance project and collaborative collage that confronts our past, breathes into our present moment, and envisions a future that is inherently liberatory.
