Pineapple Theatre Project
The idea for Pineapple Theatre Project started in a graduate school course titled Understanding Diversity and Teaching Pluralism. Simultaneously, I was involved with an inter-ability production (featuring an ensemble made of up artists across the spectrum of disability and neurodivergence) of Peter and the Starcatcher. In a snowball effect of sorts it wound up morphing into my thesis project. The premise was to take an inter-ability ensemble and devise an entirely new Theatre for Young Audiences Piece. Snapshots of that process are featured below. Now that the project has ended my hope is to find a home for Pineapple Theatre Project at either a theatre company or a university. With the continued goal of expanding who has access to performing in and creating theatre by esablishing partnerships between artistic organizations and organizations that serve disabled and neurodivergent individuals.
