Performing for Two Nights Only!

Friday, July 12th, 7:30pm at The Strand Theatre, Boston
Saturday, July 13th, 2:00pm at OBERON, Cambridge

 The Proclamation Project is an original theater piece created by 11 high school students,  from local high schools, inspired by the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address. Under the guidance of playwright Brendan Shea and director Shira Milikowsky, the ensemble has explored themes of freedom, social justice and civil rights, in both historical and modern contexts. Through writing exercises, physical theater improvisations, music, dance and storytelling, the ensemble has transformed research and dialogue into a vital performance piece. 
The project’s inclusion in the National Civil War Project has provided the A.R.T. ensemble an opportunity to collaborate across cities, as the other three theaters in the National Civil War Project facilitate the same process with local teens in their cities. All four ensembles stay connected across geographical boundaries through Skype and Facebook.
