Quest Fest 2012- Community Arts Residency

As part of Quest Fest 2012, an annual international visual theater festival in Baltimore, we at Black Cherry Puppet Theater did a community arts residencies in collaboration with the Creative Alliance's Open Minds after school arts programs.
I worked with a group of high schoolers at a local library.
We used the Lakota ghost story "The Man Who Was Afraid of Nothing" as inspiration for our puppet show.  We read the story and discussed its origin, themes, and relevance to our culture today.  The students designed the set and puppets for the show, and we collaborated on expressing the story through wordless-choreography set to music, which helped our show be accessible to the broadest audience possible.
