Still Point Theatre Collective of Chicago


Still Point Theatre Collective unites the performing arts and creative writing in an effort to inspire compassion, raise important social justice issues, and reduce the stigmas associated with incarceration and disability. Still Point Theatre Collective’s Persephone Project facilitates theater workshops with women in Chicago-area detention centers including the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), Lake County Jail, and the Dwight Correctional Center. These workshops are safe spaces for incarcerated women to tell their stories, build community, and explore together. At the end of a three- to four-month process, participants present an original performance for invited guests, prison volunteers, and their fellow inmates that provides a forum to express their views, and share with their experiences and challenges, as incarcerated women.
