What’s Up With Cornerstone?
2021 has been a busy year so far and we’ve got a lot more coming up. Here are a few of the projects and programs we are working on:
March – August 2020: Performing Our Stories/Transformative Arts
A correspondence and creative journaling process with participants in the Wasco State Prison culminating in an illustrated radio play inspired by community stories.
April – June 2020: What Happens Next (online)
Reimagining Naomi Iizuka’s play by, for and about veterans What Happens Next as an online project with the Blue Ox Veterans Program in Eureka, the Challenged Athletes Foundation in San Diego and veteran organizations in Culver City.
May – October 2020: The San Pedro Community Play Project (Phase 1)
Motivated by the redevelopment process of the Rancho San Pedro housing, Cornerstone Theater is working with resident families there and across San Pedro to explore changes in the neighborhood. What’s the history of the people of San Pedro, beyond the information that is written down? What are the stories of the people who live there and what are their dreams for the future of the community.
