Roosevelt High School and Hand2Mouth have come together to give the Intermediate Acting students the tools for devising their own show. With Jenni and Gio leading the students, along with the help of other local guest artists, these students will devise their own show all while being graded. Will they get and A for effort?! We sure hope so. Hand2Mouth has launched a year-long residency program at Roosevelt High School for teens to learn devising techniques, culminating in the creation and production of a new work created exclusively by the participants. Youth Residency Program students will work with Hand2Mouth company members, resident and partnering artists, using a variety of devising methods and mediums to create an original performance. There is something magical that happens when a group of people decide they will make something together—something that’s never been seen before. You’re required to take risks, hold each other up, look out for one another; sometimes listen and sometimes speak. In devised theatre, you’re a creator: your story, your life, your way of seeing the world, your artistry, that’s what makes the show. To be produced in Spring 2020.
