In the Fall of 2017, we will present an evening of short plays, dances, poetry, monologues, and art, tentatively titled Bridging What Divides Us. The intention is to use the artistic process as a mirror to society and as a laboratory of human behavior to examine the question, “How do we begin to bridge the divides that we are experiencing the world today?” The first step is to gain a broader and deeper understanding of the forces and issues that are creating such treacherous divisions. We want to know how the members of our community perceive the situation. We also hope to go beyond the most apparent divisions, which manifest in the political arena, to gain insights about divisions in all aspects of our lives. Ultimately, this project creates opportunities for dialogues about these grave issues facing us today. <br> We hope to collect your thoughts, original writing and suggestions for material including: plays • songs • poetry • found documents • art works etc.
