A first-of-its-kind endeavor, By Our Hands is a cross-institutional theatrical experience between the University of Georgia, Spelman College, librarians, archivists, students, professionals, incarcerated individuals, and community partners. The Georgia Incarceration Performance Project incorporates scenes directly from Georgia history to negotiate our relationship with incarceration, race, and the impact of forced labor through dance, media, and dramatic performance. This unique experience will be limited to four shows only and will be free and open to the public.
This production is available free to the public due to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Willson Center for the Humanities & Arts, the Ferman Fund, the McCay Fund, and the Franklin Excellence Fund.
