center – 2/28/14

On Fridays the Acting Together class works with students from Central Falls – a group facing some challenges in getting enough credits together to graduate. We’re building a performance together. This – from a recent group-writing exercise… Silence is falling to/through a center?

 

Born in Providence

Raised in Pawtucket

And now I live

In Central Falls

 

My goal is to graduate

I was raised in Pawtucket

There seems like so much

I was born in New Jersey

 

Done being born

I did a lot of living

Now back being born

I’m the youngest, adored

 

Living and living

The youngest, adored

I found my soul

Bigger each year

 

I was born in Providence

Moved to NC

Now I’m back!

I found my soul

 

I ball instead of study

Love marriage two kids

I found my soul

I live in Central Falls

 

There seems like so much

I was born in Alberta

Started exploring

And that’s how I study

 

I am from water

Born in Cape Verde

I grew up in Dorchester

Then moved to Rhode Island

 

I was born in Seattle

And I still exist

I keep on growing

A family jam circle

 

Salt coast leave love

Off the red line

Gumbo Jam Circle

I’ve always lived in Central Falls

 

My goal is to make it far in life

My goal is to graduate

And I will accomplish that

My family: all loud love

 

I live in Central Falls

And I live in Central Falls
