"Defiance" imagines a near-future society where all creative expression is outlawed. In spite of living in a totalitarian environment, some people find a way to sing in secret, or dream out loud in poems and paintings.
This production is an experience in storytelling, that explores themes of social justice and education through the arts. The play was written by South Seattle middle school students, and is one part of a community project in collaboration with students, actors, activists and educators.
Donte Felder is the director, as well as an educator and screenwriter. The performances and other parts of the project are funded by a grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, and support from TheFilmSchool of Seattle.
