Face Off Theatre Company is excited to partner with Detroit based, Black and Brown Theatre for its last show of the season.
Our Voices Project is a unique program in which students write their own short plays and direct adult professional actors in performances of the work. Culture, community, and education connect through Black and Brown Theatre’s Our Voices Festival of New Plays.
This festival will support students in writing and directing short plays relevant to their own experiences, then realizing productions performed by Face Off Theatre and Black and Brown Theatre’s diverse database of talent. The plays will be performed in Kalamazoo and Detroit.
This youth-driven approach helps build skills and confidence, validating students’ experiences and perspectives. Developed by award-winning playwright and educator Emilio Rodriguez, Our Voices empowers students as leaders to tell the stories of their neighborhoods, aspirations, and the issues important to their lives.
