RE:VISION | A State of Emergence, a new work in development, explores the profound but often untold journeys that people take after release from prison, addressing reintegration in the age of mass incarceration. We have been sourcing much of our material from the true stories of the young people in the company, most of whom have immediate family members who are currently or formerly incarcerated, and many of whom have been working directly with the company to share their stories and experiences. Through hip-hop theater, compelling narrative, multimedia, dance, and testimony, Truthworker brings three uniquely powerful stories to life–looking deeply at the ricocheting impacts of incarceration and re-entry on family systems. RE:VISION is the third production in our trilogy focused on the prison industrial complex.
