Faces of Change, Asolo Rep’s fifth annual community-based documentary theater project, is created from the real-life experiences of local residents and community members. Inspired by the conversation started by this season’s productions of The Great Society and The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, our central question is: Racially-motivated violence is more visible today than ever. How do we respond, and how can we take action where we live? As the theater concludes a multi-year exploration of the American Character, we bring the real words of local residents to the stage alongside the art and issues in each season.


Through the collection of stories (by way of story circles, interviews and theater games & activities), the Education & Outreach Department aims to provide an opportunity for local community-building: this process allows for an ongoing discussion and collaboration, and uses theater to create connections and to explore connections that already exist.


Tickets are FREE but reservations are required.
