THE STORY:

THE PERFORMANCE PROJECT INC wrote -

Help support the creation, production, and premier of Tenderness; a compelling and timely theatre piece. Through Tenderness, we wish to reach people through their hearts and minds, by aligning individual narratives within a structure that presents humanity's capacity for both violence, and for extraordinary tenderness.

TENDERNESS AT A GLANCE: An original multi-lingual physical theater piece being developed by First Generation Ensemble, a group of youth ages 16 to 22 from Haiti, South Sudan, Burundi, Guinea, and the US. Tenderness explores the dehumanization at the core of violence, while also revealing the power of human tenderness and connection as our most powerful human force.

DIRECETED BY: JULIE LICHTENBERG & IYAWNA BURNETT
