Our performances can consist of one or more trained artists presenting original work that cover a range of topics including identity, language, and social change. Performance range from 15 - 60 minutes depending on event, needs, etc.
Our workshops create an opportunity for participants to get closer and find, develop, publicly present, and apply their voices as creators of societal change. Workshops range from 60-90 minutes depending on event, needs, etc.
