Regina Louise: Bearing Our Souls

Regina Louise (UC Riverside): $2,500 for Bearing Our Souls. Graduate Arts Grants

‘Bearing Our Souls’ is an experimental theatre story which depicts the journey of a foster child as she navigates the tumultuous terrain of the California foster care system. Her story about finding, losing, and then finding love again will be set against the back drop of 25 seemingly disparate stories that have been culled from public records, interviews, and personal narrative. All of these stories will work towards the investigation of identity, belonging, love, lost; ultimately it is a story of how we gain agency and self-permission in order to construct a self from nothing.
