The Monologue Project: A New Dance Drama for Older Youth
This highly collaborative project brought together a community of engaged and invested artists and educators. Led by Ballet Austin, The Monologue Project was an extension of the ongoing partnership between Ballet Austin, Pollyanna Theatre, and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum. The addition of The Phoenix Center for Art & Soul has allowed us to capture our efforts on film, an invaluable resource for us all. Residency support was provided by all four of these organizations as well as Badgerdog Literary Publishing. Students from St. Edward’s University participated in the script’s development and as performers in the premiere performances of the production, Out of Many…One, The Monologue Project.
This production was presented for school audiences on Friday, November 7, 2008 at the Ballet Austin Studio Theatre in the Butler Center for Dance Education. It also toured to area middle and high schools November 10-18.
