Current research cycle

With the stunning production of Choose Your Destination, a play by four young women connected to Good Shepherd Youth Services, TSDC concluded its fourth performance creation workshop series. In the workshops leading up to the performance, members of the TSDC team used performance-as-research methods designed to invite the youth to explore (and show through performance) how mechanisms of social interaction would have to change in order to make Hamilton a better place to live for people with issues and concerns similar to theirs. The team's focus is now on gathering and organizing materials that came out of the performance, conducting interviews with Choose Your Destination’s youth participant-performers about their experience creating and performing the play, and conducting surveys and interviews to seek reflections from those who saw the play. For more information about the play its reception and a glimpse into the workshop process, check out our blog.
