How We G.L.O.W.: Exploring LGBTQ+ Youth Identity Through Interview Theatre
The How We G.L.O.W. Project amplifies the voices of lgbtq+ youth through interview theatre. Creators Jamila Humphrie and Emily Schorr Lesnick completed 21 interviews with young people of diverse backgrounds about their identities, the labels they claim or create, and the biggest issues facing their communities. Now, with a small cast playing multiple roles, these stories are coming to life, with a script made entirely of the words of the interview participants. Inspired by The Laramie Project and the work of Anna Deavere Smith, this project blurs the line between audience, theatre and community. By learning about how these young people G.L.O.W. (Gay, Lesbian or Whatever), we hope audiences will leave with a desire to deepen cross-generational dialogue and to work in solidarity with these young people towards structural changes that support their identities.
The show runs 40 minutes with a talkback with the actors immediately following.
