Face to Face

A year long theatre and dialogue project about the intersections of race, class, and age

Rising Youth Theatre, Teatro Bravo, and Twined are producing Face to Face, a youth led theatre and dialgoue project that brings adults and youth from a wide range of backgrounds together to explore major questions around the intersections of race, class, and age. 


The project will be informed by the following major questions:

How have the histories of peoples in the United States been affected by what happens at the intersections of race, class, and age?

 What power structures reinforce racist systems that impact how young people grow up? 

And how can young people use an artistic process to instigate and deepen these conversations with their peers and with adults in their communities?
