This Weekend: Interlochen Students Share Special Performance of ‘The PrOcess’ with Morgan Breon
Bill Church, Interlochen Arts Academy Director of Theatre, works with Parallel 45 to find a director, outside of the school, to work with the students on a unique production piece.
Over the course of eight weeks, students worked with Morgan Breon from Heal.Be.Live. — An organization whose mission is to use art to start conversations in communities.
Breon shares, “It’s been me showing them my journey, to give them permission to walk out their journey. I talk about experiences of not fitting in, or feeling isolated…I really have to honestly give a lot of credit to Bill for seeing something in me that I didn’t see in myself. In a very circular way I think that’s something I’ve been able to bring to the students in helping them to see things that maybe they haven’t seen about themselves yet and feel confident about it.”
These performances also allow the students to go beyond the boxes that they put themselves in.
It’s important to spark conversations that talk about topics that can go unaddressed. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and unique to each student. And each piece in the performance sheds a light on some of their own personal experiences in this world, that many people can relate.
Interlochen students were able to be vulnerable and open up to their classmates about topics that they were passionate about. This theatre production allows the students to share their personal stories into performances that will encourage social impact.
