The Fairytale Project: Pedagogy & Performance

The Fairytale Project is a historically inspired tale of Jim and Winnie Shankle, founders of the Texas Freedom Colony, Shankleville. With peculiar encounters with the past- their modern day descendants learn to cherish what matters the most. This piece blends history, cultural studies, Afrofuturism, and more to create dance theater that portray the legacies of Black people in Texas. This session will leave educators and creatives empowered to tell stories that blend pedagogy and performance.
