Thought Questions: What is your community or communities? Would you define it/them by age group, ethnic or gender identity, political philosophy, class, workplace, neighborhood, or another way (you can have more than one, and it can be as simple as “a community of my friends”) Pick one. Do you have a performance idea or two that might reveal, challenge, and/or embrace your community or a personal “vision” that you would like to contribute to it?
