This interactive museum theatre piece follows a young artist named Mel as he struggles with his fears of sharing his new artwork. With the support of his friends and the audience, he learns the power of telling his story and building community. Based on the exhibition WIRE(D) and CHAIN(ED) by Texas artist Melvin Edwards, this museum theatre piece helps young people connect with visual art and build community with their peers.
With private performances for the Priscilla Pond Flawn Child and Family Lab School and Campbell Elementary.

Metamorphosis is a multimedia performance project that interlaces interactive digital archive and live performance to create assemblages of moments of home and transition. Exploring the artworks of Joey Fauerso, Deborah Roberts, and Njidkeka Akunyili Crosby, this project asks audiences to engage with the visual artwork as well as participatory moments of the performance within the museum.

Created in partnership with GirlForward.
