June 2010 – Jamie J Invited to Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Indiana University of Pennsylvania Frederick Douglas Scholar and Sarah Lawrence alum, Jeannelle Henderson invited Jamie J to be a Guest Artist lecturing to her summer theatre class at IUP. The Intro to Theatre class is for non theatre majors. Jamie J worked with Jeannelle Henderson and her students to create a theatre project based on the recent Arizona Immigration Law case where a Mexican worker killed an Arizona farmer. Jamie J led the class over a two-day period to begin the process of creating a theatre piece around the issue using theatre games to create characters and dialogue. The goal of the project, according to Ms. Henderson is to, “give non-theatre students a chance to experience [the relevance of] theatre as it relates to daily life.”

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
