About this Artist
In 1997, three visionary artists established WombWork Productions utilizing dance, music, and theatre as traditional sources of healing and empowerment for the community. The Nu World Art Ensemble, WombWork Production’s youth-driven touring theatre company, provides culturally and spiritually-based instruction in vocal and dance techniques, writing, psychodrama, meditation, and Native American and African songs and rituals. Nu World creates riveting and insightful theatre productions based on the life experiences of its young participants. Students also gain experience in leadership and community outreach, improving their sense of self-worth and inspiring them to become an integral part of positive change.
We are dedicated to delivering programs and performances that positively impact youth and community. Major components of our programs include: Acting, Dance, Drumming, Vocal Music, Crafts, and Leadership Building. WombWork is the only arts organization in Baltimore that uses the performing arts as a platform for engaging youth in a creative process of confronting issues affecting their lives.
"Even in very challenging situations, WombWork’s team collaborates and uses several positive behavior and character development strategies to foster a creative atmosphere with clear expectations. These attributes enable them to keep students engaged throughout the entire school day in a much needed artistic environment. WombWork consistently utilizes acting to emphasize the importance of literacy and mathematics and embeds those two primary curricular areas throughout their lessons. In giving students a well-rounded theater arts experience, WombWork often utilizes multi-media technology throughout their lessons which has noticeably enabled them to give students a high level of interest in theater arts.
WombWork Productions is certainly enriching the lives of children and local communities in Baltimore City through all of the compassionate work that they provide through the perpetual usage of social identity & awareness and action through actual performance and teaching."
