As part of The Trinity University Theatre Program’s commitment to representing diverse perspectives, and in response to this historical moment in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, we invite short works from students, staff, and faculty who are Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color.* The Trinity Theatre program will support and broadcast these pieces over the course of four online events that will include a mix of recorded video, audio, and live streamed elements: September 12 & 26 and October 17 & 31.
Contributions might include (but are certainly not limited to) oral stories, like those told at the Moth, monologues, slam poetry, short plays, podcasts, performance art, dances, lectures, songs, music, paintings, drawings, illustrations, or animations. Contribution can also be made by assisting with organization and logistical planning, as well as with technical needs. We urge all interested Trinity students, staff, and faculty, regardless of artistic experience or field of study, to contribute. We are committed to making participation accessible to those with hearing, visual, mobility-related, and other impairments. We welcome contributions from BIPOC LGBTQIA students, faculty, and staff. We invite work in any language (or combination of languages).
We are excited by the possibilities and committed to supporting a diverse range of work. This is a first step toward a more racially diverse, representative, and engaged Theatre Program at Trinity--and through it, we hope, a platform for rehearsing a better world.
To contribute, either as a creator, performer, organizer, or technical assistant to any of the events, please fill out this form. For those wishing to participate in the Sept. 12 event, forms are due by 5PM Monday, Aug. 31. For all other event dates forms are due by 5PM Thursday, September 10. We are excited to include everyone who submits a proposal and, if there is enough interest, we will add dates as needed.
