In Our Home


5 Playwrights + 5 Rooms=1 Dynamic Play.  Modern-Day Griot Theatre Company was proud to present In Our Home, our new experimental, interactive theatrical project. Playwrights of color probe the limits of intimacy in one act plays staged in the rooms of an actual Brooklyn home.

Performing the Streets

Commissioned by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, in collaboration with the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Alliance, we set out to produce work that was showcased in a public setting (Muss Walkway right next to the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott). Our Project was called: What Happened...

Can more than one person tell the same story? What happens when someone describes an incident from his or her past? What if it's a group of "some ones"? Do our perceptions change as their genders change? Does it change with their age or appearance? We wanted to find out what happens when more than one person tell the same story.
