A National Call To Action For: Every 28 Hours: An Investigation of The Events In Ferguson Missouri, and Black Lives In America


A National Call To Action For: Every 28 Hours: An Investigation of The Events In Ferguson Missouri, and Black Lives In America
A Collaboration Between The One-Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) & Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Week In Residence & Community Performance 
in Saint Louis & Ferguson, MO:
Sunday October 18th –Sunday October 25th
National Week Of Action:  October 26th- October 30th

What this is:
Every 28 Hours is a reference to a widely shared statistic: every 28 hours in America, a black person is killed by the police.  The One-Minute Play Festival (Dominic D’Andrea, Producing Artistic Director), and Oregon Shakespeare Festival (Claudia Alick, Producer) have teamed up to create a dynamic partnership in Every 28 Hours: a national partnership with a locally specific focus on the events of Ferguson, Mo.

The project that will start with a gathering of artists from around the country, nominated by their respective participating theatre companies in St. Louis from Oct 18-25, engaging with the Ferguson community, citizens, activists, and organizations to have dialogue, understanding, and story telling in relationship to the events that happened last year.

We well generate a body of one-minute plays, using the specific 1MPF playmaking methodology, will cast/rehearse/perform as a rapid response to what we’ve learned, heard, and experienced on Oct 25th. The plays will be performed at a central location in St. Louis, and possibly within the Ferguson community as well (if we are granted proper access to do so.)
