Marc Bamuthi Joseph and /peh-LO-tah/

Marc Bamuthi Joseph's interaction with communities is deep and diverse. In merging his experience as an educator, artist/activist and scholar, Joseph's methodology reflects a variety of approaches. At the core of all engagement is the activation and empowerment of youth.

Attacking the discourse of economic inequality within the face of shifting definitions of American citizenship, /peh-LO-tah/ aligns art and sport in the framing of both American reality, and global interconnectedness.

The broader conversation around /peh-LO-tah/ is about who we are as Americans, and what our paths to citizenship are. How can we all live together in democratic space? The show uses soccer, a sport enjoyed on a global scale, to evoke ideas of where we want to be, and how we want to live together.

 

Key components of community engagement and residency activities for /peh-LO-tah/ may include:

- Soccer & writing clinics for young audiences

- Community Roundtable or Panel Discussions

- Writing & Performance Workshops with Marc Bamuthi Joseph

- Master Classes with Cast Members
