To kick off our 2021-22 Season, NWT's Summer Program leads into our Fall Youth Production, Rise: The Reconstruction Project.
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Most people will say it does, simply because every action has an equal opposite reaction. Our world is filled with billions of people whose actions affect each other every single day. Today's actions can change tomorrow's future. What do you choose to do today for your tomorrow?
We kick off our 2021-22 Season with NWT's RISE Summer Program developing an original work for the Fall Youth Production. Rise: The Reconstruction Project is the second installment of our summer youth program, returning after the success and impact from last year's Rise: The Isolation Project. This groundbreaking program is led by master teaching artist, and beloved NWT alumna, Mariah Burks. Students will create original performance pieces that will be filmed and shared virtually in September 2021. This project will revisit a past NWT original production, America through the Looking Glass, based on the tragedies surrounding 9/11 and the stories which have been shaping our world since. Students will work alongside original cast members to explore our connections to a moment in time that shook our nation twenty years ago and the impact it has had on our experiences of today.
Donations of all sizes create artistic opportunities for hundreds of youth and adults each year.
