Community Engaged Programs

Community engagement is integral to all of PCC’s work. The Undesirable Elements series exemplifies the company’s community engagement approach. The series is a collaborative, interview-based theater process exploring issues of place, culture, and identity in the lives of individuals in specific communities, who tell their own stories on stage. Its methodology strives to always be in partnership with communities and to invite collaboration with artists and team members to utilize for their own practice and communities. As such, a training model was created so that other people, artists and non-artists alike, can bring its pedagogy to their communities. PCC also partners with colleges and universities to offer classes and residencies. has also launched a Creative Aging program bringing theatrical storytelling to older adults in New York.

Secret Histories, our in-school arts education program launched in 2008, brings PCC's approach to documentary theater to New York City public schools, currently serving 1,700 students in grades 3-12 in 8 partner schools. Residencies launch with a live performance, featuring true stories of immigrant and first generation New Yorkers, followed by a cast Q&A, then up to 20 classroom sessions where teaching artists guide students through oral & written storytelling approaches to explore their cultural identities, communities, and life experiences. The program culminates in an original theater piece about their personal histories, cultural heritage, and dreams. PCC also partners with colleges and universities to offer workshops and classes, and has launched a Creative Aging program bringing theatrical storytelling to older adults in New York City
