Performing Together is a series of performance creation workshops designed for youth ages 16-24 in Point Saint Charles and other marginalized communities in Montreal. The project was selected for the Living Labs with Bâtiment 7 and the majority of this funding will be spent on commissioning artists from the Montreal BIPOC community to help lead these workshops. In Montreal, theatre classes are quite expensive and workshops are designed for professionals looking to advance their careers. This making them inaccessible to the greater community. This project will provide accessible theatre classes for youth who would not have access otherwise. Olivia’s research looks at how this process can best further our collective fight for social justice.
