The Graduates are 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). Created during their year-long Sacred Wellness 360º residency at the CAC, Sacred Journey is a new work by the ensemble. Each piece of the performance will address the thoughts, challenges, and needs faced by members as they continue to heal from the carceral system.
This program is part of Inter[SECTOR], the CAC’s three-year multidisciplinary arts programming centering cross-sector engagements with the fields of carceral justice, healthcare, and the environment. During the 2021-2022 season, Inter[SECTOR] examines the impact of mass incarceration on our community through performances, workshops, and virtual conversations created and led by women and non-binary artists alongside individuals impacted by the in justices in the prison system.
