GATHER PHILLY 2017- In a basement of a Philadelphia  coffeeshop, people came to witness and participate in this salon-style open rehearsal. This was intended to create a space to unpack unsettled emotions due the political climate.

The viewers took a moment away from their books and coffee, and took part in the process and open dialogue.  Artists namely Frank Leone, Nikolai McKenzie, William Burden, Chuck Schultz, Frankie Markocki, Esther Tarpega, and more dove into communal writing, movement, music and storytelling.

Global Storyteller is a group of middle schoolers interested in sharing and learning the interconnection of cultures and ancestral lineages.
