11th & Pine is a documentary theater project exploring how the community remembers the organized protests on Capitol Hill during the summer of 2020. We are interested in capturing the local histories of the CHOP from those who lived, worked, and protested on Capitol Hill at the time. Through oral history interviews, we seek to uncover how community members remember, understand, and continue to be impacted by the events of that summer. In partnership with Sound Theater Company, the collected interviews will be transformed into a live theater work where the community’s stories are brought to life on stage. Weaving together personal testimonies with theater, we will tell the story of the organized protests from the perspectives of those who bore witness to its unfolding. This project gets to the heart of the uniquely localized circumstances that gave birth to a movement.
