Palefsky Collision Project
Celebrate King Day 2017 with the young artists of the Palefsky Collision Project as they explore the issues and ideas that challenge their generation to change the world! This original work created in collaboration with Alliance Mellon Playwright in Residence. Pearl Cleage and director, Patrick McColery will energize and inspire you with a message of hope, peace and the power of community. Join us for a unique King Day celebration you will never forget!
Members of the 2016 Alliance Theatre Palefsky Collision Project, A Celebration in Search of an Assumption: The Artist’s Role in Wartime, have come back together to create this special performance for MLK Day. Inspired by the themes found in Walt Whitman’s poem, Leaves of Grass, as well as current civil rights issues in our country, these young artists collaborated with playwright Pearl Cleage and director Patrick McColery to reimagine their original script through the lens of Dr. King’s message of hope and peace amid civil unrest.
Written by participating high school students in collaboration with Alliance Playwright in Residence Pearl Cleage.
Performances will be in the Rich Auditorium - Memorial Arts Building
