LINKBack - Our Elders' Stories is a community theatre program engaging Elders in the sharing and celebration of their stories. The stories we seek are times in their lives when the Elders stood up against injustice and fought for rights or the rights of another.
In Spring 2017 PROOF worked with the resident community at Cobble Hill Health Center in Brooklyn. Weekly sessions of performance and stories were held with the residents to inspire and engage them in their stories of activism and courage over their lifetimes.
The stories gathered have been used as the inspiration for an original performance being written and performed by PROOF and a team of artists. The performance created is "linked back" to the residents to mirror back to them their extraordinary stories and experiences.
