Watts Village Theater Company has landed a Cal Humanities “Community Stories Grant”   in support of our play project, “It’s A Krip-Hop Nation: Where My Crippled Homies At!”  The central charactersof the play will be aspiring performers with disabilities acquired through violence or violent accident.  We are seeking to interview people who fit this description.  The play will be a work of fiction drown from the very real experiences of our interviewees.

The collaborators are, Lynn Manning, playwright, poet, actor, Co-founder and Artistic Director of Watts Village Theater Company; and Leroy Moore, poet, performer, disability rights activist, and founder of Krip-Hop Nation.

These two internationally recognized disabled artists are seeking to create a unique glimpse  into the contentious world of Disability arts and culture, as well as poor police relations.  

If you or anyone you know is disabled through violence or accident and wishes to participate in this project, contact Watts Village Theater Company by email: [email protected] or by phone at 232/265-WVTC (9882.
