REPRISE is a hit at the Home Away Festival!
It has been nothing short of a privilege to make this show. The Northwestern Settlement House has helped so many immigrants and people battling poverty over it’s 125 years of existence. When I was asked by National Theatre of Scotland to be the lead artist for the US portion of the festival, it was clear the story of Harriet Vittum’s violin was the one we needed to tell- a story about keeping promises, the power of a gift and paying it forward.
We were lucky to have wonderful partner’s in Adventure Stage Chicago, Old Town School of Folk, Chicago West Community Music Center, and of course, the Northwestern Settlement. To top it off we received the MacArthur International Connections Fund to develop and share this work in Chicago and then in Glasgow with our new friends from India, Australia, Brazil, Jamaica, and Scotland.
