- ‘Butterflies’ are not free in reality-based Strand show
By Beth Spotswood - Saturday Jul 22, 2017
Lauren Spencer had rolled up the cuffs of her jeans and kicked off her shoes to move around the Rueff, a black box performance space perched above ACT’s Strand Theater.Spencer is directing “Black Butterflies,” a play commissioned by ACT’s Collaborative Youth Arts Project that brings together multiple programs, artists and resources to tell stories that don’t usually get told.The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools, “Black Butterflies” takes a look at the circumstances and challenges of three teenage girls in a juvenile detention facility.[...] the play was written by a black man, Darren Canady, and directed by a black woman.The cast is mostly made up of women and girls of color, and women who’ve actually been in these detention facilities have been invited to rehearsal to give Spencer feedback.“Black Butterflies” is also the third play ever commissioned by the Collaborative Youth Arts Project, or CYAP. the project brings together performers from ACT’s Young Conservatory Program, its Education Program, and Destiny Arts, an Oakland youth program that uses dance, performance and art to instill peace in kids.The people and players behind every aspect of the program, from the playwright to the teenage actresses spending their summer acting in a jail setting, are artists who don’t normally get the amplification that a institution like ACT can provide.Grabbing the opportunity, Spencer has reached out to numerous activists and organizations throughout the Bay Area to enrich the premier performances of “Black Butterflies,” including welcoming musicians and spoken word artists to perform after the show and creating an art installation of dozens of black butterflies to welcome guests as they arrive and leave the Rueff.“Before I was in this play, I never knew what happened in juvenile detention centers,” said 17-year-old actress Amanda Morrow.To help her cast let go of the difficult subject matter once they leave the theater, Spencer and her cast have created a daily practice of “de-role-ing” in which the actors surround whomever is leaving for the day and physically wipe the stress and the tension of the story from their bodies.Bishop, who has never performed at such a professional level before, isn’t afraid to get up in front of a theater full of ACT playgoers and tackle the intensity of her role.
