Here On This Bridge: The Ism Project
MediaRites, a nonprofit organization that provides innovative, award-winning documentary, theatre and outreach programs, today announced its first full production and original work for its Theatre Diaspora program.
Here On This Bridge: The Ism Project is a 70-minute full production comprised of six short monologues exploring the intersections of race, gender, orientation and nationality, with stories specifically from Pacific Northwest perspectives. The monologues were developed in local workshops curated from a national submission process. Directed by Catherine Ming Tien Duffly, the show was comprised actors of color who participated in a six-month series of workshops to bring this production to life. All shows will include post-show discussions with audience members to bridge divides and create much-needed empathy, understanding and compassion. Writers include Josie Seid, Samson Syharath, Yasmin Ruvalcaba, Heater Raffo, Bonnie Ratner, Roberta Hunte, and Dmae Roberts.

Monologues include tolerance, understanding and bridging divides:
An Iraqi refugee woman reacts to news of shootings and child safety
A Black tradeswoman tries to negotiate  complexities of diversity in the workplace,
A Latina recalls the harrowing story of her mother escaping hardship and violence to cross the Rio Grande
A Laotian gay man honors his refugee mother's strength
An Asian American reflects on family history with Oregon's exclusion laws
And a Black middle-class woman experiences racial profiling in Oregon.

All shows are suggested donation and geared to find common ground and community discussions with ages 14 and up.
