Palefsky Collision Project

What is the Palefsky Collision Project?

For three weeks each summer, the Alliance Theatre assembles a diverse group of 20 teenagers from metro Atlanta to explore and unpack a classic text under the guidance of a professional playwright and director. Through improvisational exercises, oral history, choreography, the individual performing talents they possess, and their writing, the teenagers create a new piece inspired by the classic text but perceived through their own utterly unique and contemporary prism. The Palefsky Collision Project affords teens a unique theatrical experience and gives them ownership of a performance at the Alliance. It also gives students validity – confidence in their talents, strength for the future, and power in their decisions.

Through this dynamic project, metro Atlanta teens create theatre for and about themselves by “colliding” with a dramatic text, reinforcing the idea that theatre can address their particular ideas and feelings.

The Palefsky Collision Project is a fantastic way to become a part of the South’s premiere regional theatre company, meet and collaborate with professional theatre artists, participate in an innovative creative process, and make great new friends from schools all over the metro area!
