THE OTHER SIDE
In The Other Side, I lead a devising process to create plays on social justice issues that are important to the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls at PS218 in the Bronx. We also take inspiration from the challenges and ideas from our pen pals in India and Africa. In 2018, we partnered with Groundswell to also create a mural inspired by the stories used in the play the girls wrote and performed. We perform these plays for school and outside community members which lead to conversations about the challenges for girls that come up across divisions of country, language and identity.
