Sacred Journey

A Work-in-Progress by The Graduates

Created during their year-long Sacred Wellness 360º residency at the CAC, Sacred Journey is a new work by The Graduates, a performance group of formerly incarcerated women. The work features a series of pieces created by members of the ensemble that address their thoughts, challenges, and needs as they continue to heal from impacts of the carceral system.

Complimentary tickets are available for prison-impacted individuals, including the formerly-incarcerated, their families, and those working to end mass-incarceration.

Sacred Journey is The Graduates' new new work-in-progress performance, incorporating dance, music, multimedia, and personal stories. A New Orleans-based performance ensemble of formerly-incarcerated women who were former members of the Drama Club at Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women (LCIW), The Graduates were among the CAC's 2020-2021 artists-in-residence.

This program is presented as part of the CAC's Inter[SECTOR] program focus on issues surrounding carceral justice, health, and the environment. Learn more
