A Flint Youth Theatre Production. Performed onsite at the Flint Farmers' Market. Oct-Nov 2014.
This site-specific theatrical experience, that traveled the audiences through the Flint Farmers' Market explored nine different ways the market engages and nourishes the Flint community. The product of nearly three years of collaborative research, interviews and community dialogues, 9 x Nourished was devised by Flint Youth Theatre in collaboration with Michael Rohd of Sojourn Theatre.
"An experience that brings the Flint Farmers' Market to life in new ways while also exploring the commitment people feel to their city, no matter what its reputation might be." - Bridgette M. Redman, Encore Michigan. Read the full review here.
"Portrayed and performed with the audience as part of the action all the way, 9 x Nourished is itself a labor of love and totally unique in the way it serves as a sort of dedication to the space." - Kathleen Kirby, Flint Area Theatres. Read the full review here.
