Emergence 1 & 2

Performed in gardens that noted abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe referred to as a “place of healing for the soul,” Emergence includes words, dance, and song developed in prison-based residencies over the past 16+ years along with work by returned citizen artists and others. Emergence draws inspiration from the Solitary Garden installation at HBSC created in 2020 by artist Jackie Sumell as a living tribute to Albert Woodfox, author of Solitary (winner of the 2020 Stowe Prize), who served 43 years for a crime he did not commit.

Saturday’s program for Emergence will emphasize song and spoken word, and Sunday’s program will be a dance/theater work. The cast features JDPP artists joined by formerly incarcerated returned citizens who have participated in JDPP’s programs in and out of prison.
