Pillsbury House + Theatre’s Chicago Avenue Project and Bancroft Elementary school are in their third year of partnership supporting young folks’ creativity. This year’s residency began with exploring the theme of immigration by going on a collective imaginative journey to a fictitious planet. After completing this journey, we transitioned back into reality by reading the book Where We Come From, written by authors from South Minneapolis and the Bancroft community. The young people grounded themselves in their own personal histories by writing “I Am From” poems and translating these into puppets that embody their stories. This show is the result of their hard-work, collaboration, and self-expression and would not have been possible without the generous support of Bancroft’s administrators, teachers, and support staff.
