Bull City Dignity recruiting Durham high school students for docu-theater project

BCD-400Over the summer of 2015, the Kenan Institute for Ethics supported two Duke student directors and a group of Durham high school students who produced, for the first time, The Bull City Dignity Project, a documentary theater project based on the lives of Durham’s diverse community members. Having compiled this production from transcripts of over 20 interviews with Durham residents old and young, the students explored the forces that shape the city’s changing landscape, history of inequality, and unique culture and community. For our 2016 program, twelve Durham students will be selected to spend the summer acting, writing, and working closely with community members to produce this year’s show. This year’s theme of “the body” may include topics such as: health inequalities, mass incarceration, gender violence, and immigration.

Interested students should fill out the interest form. Interviews/auditions will begin on Saturday, April 16.
