EXODUS: MEMPHIS

Summer 2022-spring 2023

The In[HEIR]itance Project continues our “Exodus in America Series” in Memphis. Artists will be devising a play with communities throughout the Bluff City exploring the city’s history, the experiences of the people who live here, and its unique relationship to themes and ideas of Exodus. We will do this by hosting a series of conversations, creative salons, text studies, open rehearsals, and individual meetings where we create spaces for participants from many perspectives to learn with and from their own neighbors. The project will culminate in a brand new play that will premier in April 2023, created and shaped by everyone who shared their voices, stories and ideas.

 

In addition to the creation of a brand new play, the goal of this project is to provide a creative process that forges bonds between Memphians, makes connections at the organizational level, and increases the kind of understanding that enables longer-term, meaningful community relationships. 
 

We hope to meet you!
