Collective Stories premieres on August 27th!
"My blood is your blood, My story is Our Story."
The inaugural season of Wayward Voices continues with a summer premiere of “Collective Stories.” The New York-based company, The Sống Collective, partners with The Ujima Company along with the California-based organizer and advocate thuan nguyen to create the devised Theatre piece. The production is rooted in the process of Free Southern Theatre’s storytelling circles which brings together individuals to share and create works inspired by memories, personal experiences, and connection via facilitated sharing sessions. In this iteration, The Sống Collective and the participating artists explore the relationship and intersectionality of the Vietnamese and Black communities and use Theatre to begin difficult and necessary conversations. “Collective Stories” addresses the anti-Blackness within the Vietnamese community in order to focus on moving the Vietnamese community forward and promote healing between both communities.
