The rain didnâ€™t stop us from having fun on Sunday November 20 when our 1951 Spartan Trailer served as a video booth for people to record their stories about food access and equity atÂ Cornerstone Theatreâ€™s Block Party. The party was the last in a two-week series of events called Creative Seeds â€“ performances, discussions and learning opportunities â€“ that kicked off a major Cornerstone Project, The Hunger Cycle â€“ nine world premiere plays that will be performed over the next five years.Â In preparation for a show we plan for July, Sam Breen performed Bob Dylanâ€™s poem â€œLast Thoughts On Woody Guthrieâ€ accompanied by musician Kevin Robinson. Share YOUR stories of hunger and food at www.cornerstonetheater.org. Â Cornerstone will post them on their blog and use them to inspire their work on the Hunger Cycle.Â
This post is part of a series documenting Sam Breen’a Spartan Restoration Project. Please see his first post here and check out the archive here. The CSPA is helping Sam by serving in an advisory role, offering modest support and featuring Sam’s Progress by syndicating his feed from http://spartantrailerrestoration.wordpress.com as part of our CSPA Supports Program.
