Upcoming Project: Humanity Productions and Community Initiatives
February 2019 saw the world premiere of our latest documentary play Towards Youth: a play on radical hope in co-production with Crow's Theatre. In it, a cast of nine explored the voices of drama class students in Canada, England, Taiwan, Greece and India. PH also toured a new work-in-progress titled We Now Recognize from Khari Wendell McClelland (creator of last season's Freedom Singer) as part of TD's Black History Month programming. Coming up is more development on We Now Recognize and a new musical verbatim project.
PH YOUTH: EDUCATION
On the education front, the company has just embarked on a three-year partnership with the TDSB, bringing our signature Verbatim Theatre workshops into high schools. As a result, our engagement with schools for our recent production of Towards Youth was more than triple what we have seen in past productions, and we are already responding to teachers’ requests to design workshops as part of their curriculums and culminating projects.
PH YOUTH: COMMUNITY
In Spring 2019, PH resumes it's long-time partnership with Youth Without Shelter bringing drama programming back into the youth shelter context. This program provides an opportunity for shelter residents to de-stress, to bolster communication skills, and to explore a sense of community through play. While we have been running this program on-and-off since we incorporated, this launch will bring to fruition our long-standing dream of having a permanent presence in the shelter, with plans to expand to multiple locations in years to come.
