This residency was a collaboration between myself and Blackman High School Theater teacher Richard Browder. In this arts integration artist residency, we utilized Narrative 4 Story Exchange as a springboard for Drama III/IV students creating original monologues with a partner. We explored full-body and non-verbal communication as well, and by the fourth visit the monologues were were performed and embodied. This residency was funded through Tennessee Arts Commission’s Student Ticket Subsidy grant program.

This is just one example of a residency I can bring to schools in Tennessee. Each residency is custom-designed to fit a school’s or teacher’s needs, but if you are interested in a similarly-structured residency, that is also a possibility.
