Dubbed “theatre for the people by the people and with the people”, Standing Together, Six Feet Apart is a theatrical collage of stories gathered from individual experiences within the Richmond community during two pandemics: COVID 19 and the urgent demand for racial justice mobilized by the death of George Floyd. Evocatively woven with music and imagery, the presentation is drawn from live interviews, written stories, and improvisation.  An eclectic ensemble re-enacts the courageous personal narratives of Richmonders’ encounters with fear, sadness, confusion, and anger against a tapestry of resilience, hope, and re-awakenings. Often haunting, sometimes humorous, always compelling Standing Together, Six Feet Apart celebrates the indomitable strength of the human spirit and its ability to thrive in the face of grave adversity. Co-created and directed by Chuck Mike.
