What drives a single person to create nearly 20,000 works of art? Celebrating the life of James Castle, one of America's great outsider artists, Our Voices presents the world premiere of acclaimed playwright Charles Mee's soot and spit. Born profoundly deaf, Castle never learned to read, write, sign or speak. His art was his language. Bringing his world to life through bluegrass, dance, and multi-media displays of his works, soot and spit enables its audience to experience the “other”- and rejoice in the unquenchable creativity of the human spirit..

With: Robert Ariza*, Karen Ashino, Estelle Bajou*, Alida Rose Delaney, John Ford Dunker*, JW Guido, Peregrine Heard, Toussaint Jeanlouis*, Geraldine Leer*, Christopher Lopes, Douglas Waterbury-Tieman*, and Arielle Yoder*

Our Voices creates innovative theater that exalts diversity, engenders understanding, provokes empathy and offers an alternate way for society to organize itself. We actively investigate themes of otherness in society whether they are culture, language, gender, sexual orientation or ability while cultivating an inclusive experience that more accurately represents our shared humanity and the world in which we live.
