Community Responsive Theatre Project – April 27, 2019

In response to the Wilderness Society’s designation of the North Fork of the Gunnison River as “Too Wild to Drill”, Jessica Kahkoska and Ashley Teague from Notch Theatre Company spearheaded a community responsive theatre project called “Wild Home: An American Odyssey”.

They collected stories from residents in late summer of 2018 and wrote three vignettes centered around the quality of life and concerns about industrial development in the North Fork Valley. The first draft was presented to community collaborators during winter. The feedback received was integrated, and community members performed the three vignettes at Delicious Orchards on Saturday, April 27, 2019, followed by a panel of local non-profit activist organizations including the Creative Coalition, Citizens for a Healthy Community, Western Slope Conservation Center, Colorado Farm & Food Alliance, and North Fork Valley Community Rights Advocates.
