Tricklock Company - The Manoa Project
7 Jul 2020
The Manoa Project 2020 The Manoa Project is Tricklock’s summer high school theatre apprenticeship, a part of The National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Summer Institutes. The Manoa Project was a month-long program focusing on physical theatre, storytelling, original creation, and building community. This year, The Manoa Project’s creative process went online! The Tricklock teaching artists, interns, and students connected via group Zoom meetings and one-on-one digital sessions as they guided these amazing students toward their 2020 original production, THE SOLO STOOP SHOW. The Manoa youth ensemble created solo pieces performed in the site-specific theatre that is outside their front door, while the Manoa teachers observed their brilliant work from the safety of their cars. The Manoa Project ran June 1st-26th and the solo performances happened June 25th and 26th. The performances were filmed and edited by Tricklock’s videographer before being posted online for the public. Join NMHC and Tricklock's Elsa Menendez and Juli Hendren for a conversation about art, democracy, creativity under pandemic conditions, and what it means to forge a multicultural identity as a young artist in New Mexico.
NM Humanities is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
