The In[HEIR]itance Project creates space for communities to navigate challenging civic conversations through collaborative theater projects inspired by inherited texts, traditions, cultures, customs, and beliefs.
We believe that the broken systems we have inherited will only be healed by collectively examining our shared beliefs, experiences and biases. This is reflected both in what we make and how we make it. We focus our energies on breaking down barriers set by race, gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion, ethnicity and geography.
We believe that relationships forged through our playmaking process have long-term positive impacts for our partners. Therefore, we foster a culture of community participation and collaboration in our work that creates unique opportunities for cross-community human-to-human connections.
We believe that offering a variety of opportunities to participate in the artistic process ensures more authentic co-collaboration. We build bridges into our creative spaces to ensure a multiplicity of voices are included & activated.
We believe that our unique process allows our projects to come into being, or “emerge,” creating space for unexpected connections to appear between people, projects and perspectives.
