ELLIS is a play about immigration stories in our community and the U.S. All stories are written by immigrants and are personal stories of their own and/or their family’s experience with immigration in this country.

Told through poetry, dance, spoken word, music and art, Ellis is symbolic of the hopes, dreams and fears of immigrants.

In collaboration with Alejandra Gonzalez and Alverno College
Created by Kelly Coffey and Don Russell, this original devised work incorporates personal stories of immigration submitted from our community. This project is a celebration of those diverse stories including the joy and frustration of the experiences they face as immigrants from the past to the present.

Cooperative Performance, an avant-garde theatre/dance collective located in the heart of Milwaukee, is calling for story submissions for ELLIS, to be performed in Feb/March 2018.

Directed by Kelly Coffey and Don Russell in collaboration with Alejandra Gonzalez, ELLIS is an original adaptation of your personal immigration stories from past to present. Writers/Artists are encouraged, but not required, to perform their own work.

ELLIS is a platform for our local community to share their stories of immigration and cultures. Through this work, Cooperative Performance seeks to humanize and fight ignorance regarding immigration via education and storytelling.

Submissions must involve an interpretation of a personal immigration story, past or present, with focus on the greater Milwaukee area. We are interested in all forms of storytelling: text, spoken word, poetry, dance, music (traditional or an original song), visual art, short films, etc. Cooperative Performance strongly encourages non-English and bilingual submissions with translation provided.
All works should be no longer than 7 minutes and applicants must be 18 or older. Please include your name, email, and phone number with submission. All submissions may be sent via email to Kelly Coffey at kcoffey@cooperformke.com
*DEADLINE to submit is AUGUST 15, 2017*

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis. If selected, you grant permission for directors to respectfully edit work for the final performance piece. Selected applicants will be notified of their piece’s acceptance no later thanĀ  September 1, 2017.
