Welcome to Passage, a fantasia inspired by E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India, which uses the theater’s primal evocative powers to examine the most essential questions of our time. Obie award-winner Christopher Chen’s play gently lifts us from our own reality and sets us down in a new place: Country X. Country X has been occupied by Country Y. Chen deftly deploys theatre’s primal powers to “raise questions that make the audience profoundly uncomfortable, but simultaneously creates a welcoming space to which everyone is invited.” (Time Out New York).
Community Partner: The Journey Theatre Project
The Journey Theatre Project (JTP) works with non-profits, corporate entities, educational, religious and community organizations to create a brave space for courageous conversations. They challenge traditional power structures, and disrupt unconscious bias through the use of theatre, dialogue, game, and data. JTP builds theatre with communities around social and local issues, and is dedicated to fighting against white supremacy and the violence it has always and continues to have on black and brown bodies. They believe, reflection, dialogue and action are all needed to create transformation.
