The Other Side Intercultural Theatre Inc, is an initiative to create a community of girls through global drama exchange. We create a cross-cultural exchange between young women and girls with different cultural backgrounds via dramatic storytelling. Like pen pals, but with theatre!
Areas of interest:
Our participants’ ages range from 8-22 years old. Since 2013, we have connected over 500 girls across 4 countries, including U.S. communities in the South Bronx, East & West Harlem, Brooklyn and Staten Island, and communities in Tel-Aviv, Israel; Jattari and Anupshahr, India; and Nairobi, Kenya.
Using devised theatre and storytelling techniques, participating girls create dramatic pieces, exploring what it means to be a girl in the context of their own community and culture.
