Culture Coalition: Through the Narrows with Native American and Jewish Youth
April 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A showcase of student work followed by an audio drama by Z Puppets Rosenschnoz about finding the next step forward in life’s narrow places.
In a year-long, cross cultural exchange, Native American youth from Takoda Prep High School and Jewish youth from Bet Shalom Congregation have been exploring and sharing their ideas about roots, identity, and resiliency.
Hear the youths’ collaboratively-written Land Acknowledgement and see animated video shorts they made with Minneapolis artists Z Puppets Rosenschnoz.
Then, listen and watch as Z Puppets’ audio drama with images intertwines a story of a 3500-year old Jewish woman crossing the Red Sea with a 6 year old Cherokee boy bearing witness to the Trail of Tears in Through the Narrows.
At the end of the program, you are welcome to stay for Q & A with Culture Coalition youth artists and leaders and Z Puppets.
