I am the founder and Artistic Director of Humanity Play Project, a non-profit arts collective that is committed to creating performance with purpose. Our mission is to inspire critical thinking, teach empathy, and promote social justice through the arts.
For our inaugural event on Martin Luther King Day 2016, we explored the aftermath of the Charleston, SC tragedy in a curated evening of dance, poetry, song, and theatre. This performance was co-sponsored by West Los Angeles United Methodist Church.
Our most recent project is #Right2Recess, an interactive Theatre for Young Audiences play that follows a group of third-graders whose right to recess has come under threat after the appointment of a new principal. Weaving together puppetry, rap, and improv, #Right2Recess transforms the theatre space into a place where young audiences are encouraged to explore what it takes to stand up for something important to them and make their voices heard.
