Sojourners Project: Busing at Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church (outdoor performance):


Image

September 24, 2021

Show runs Sept. 8-26. IDEA Stages, with co-producer Control Group Productions, is excited to announce its debut live production – Sojourners Project: Busing, running in the Denver area. This pop-up immersive event unpacks the history of “desegregation” busing in Denver Public Schools, from Mrs. Rachel B. Noel (the first Black woman elected to public office in Colorado) to the 1970 school bus depot bombing, through nearly three decades of movement of young Black and Brown bodies across our city. Sojourner’s rich immersive experience combines artistry and education, with a focus on personal experiences across three generations. An interactive virtual gallery with hyperlinks will offer further learning, expanding the storytelling to reveal historical research and interviews. School performances, with accompanying curriculum, will spark dialogues with current students. Busing marks the first live production created by IDEA Stages, and the beginning of Sojourners Project: a series of works exploring the movement of Black and Brown bodies, with or without their consent, nor the agency to tell their own stories. The project emerges from dialogue between Alicia “Lisa” Young (IDEA Stages) and Patrick Mueller (Control Group), and initiates a producing partnership focused on elevating non-White / non-cis-male lead artists through the support of Control Group’s Artist Services programming. Sojourners Project: Busing is created by an all Black woman creative team, incorporating an all Black cast, and predominantly Black design and technical teams.
