New Hampshire Theatre Project has been making theatre with communities for over thirty years, and now in the wake of the Covid-19 Global Pandemic we are launching a new initiative. The We Don’t Know What This Is Yet podcast project aims to gather accounts from individuals, hold space for community dialogue, and directly engage and support a diverse pool of artists in the creation of new work.
Each episode of the podcast will be in two parts: First, we’ll sit down with a guest and talk to them about a simple theme: uncertainty. We’re looking to talk to people from all sorts of backgrounds throughout the state: medical workers, restaurateurs, small business owners, corrections officers, people in recovery, religious leaders….. What does uncertainty mean to each of us? What feels uncertain about our paths and our fields right now?
Then in part 2, we’ll give each interview to a different artist and ask them to create something - anything - inspired by these conversations. It could be a song, some poetry, a painting, a photo series, or even a dance. And we’ll talk to these creators about their experience making this work: What inspired them? What did they relate to? What seemed unfamiliar? What were their own uncertainties in this process?
It’s an opportunity to draw connections in our state and within our communities. And to create new works of art based on the stories that are happening to us now.
