Upcoming PFA Performances

Where Is Home : A Digital Living Newspaper

 In association with the University of Portland’s Public Research Fellow program, this project  addresses the current inequalities in housing access and affordability in North and Northeast Portland and exposes the historic displacements which underpin the ongoing housing crisis. Inspired by the living newspapers of the depression-era Federal Theatre Project, this performance piece will be conceived and built collaboratively by Dr. Lezlie Cross and a team of student actors, researchers, stage managers, and designers. Adapting the basic tenets of devised theatre to a digital environment, this innovative digital documentary production will be performed via Zoom on November 13 and 14, 2020.
