About The Project

RememberFest.png

REMEMBER FEST 2020 was a platform that gave emerging artists an opportunity to freely create work reflecting on their experience of 2020 as art-makers, with the additional goal of helping to alleviate some of the financial burdens that so many artists were carrying that year. The festival featured 12 total works, including three visual art showcases, three musical performances, five works of theatre and film, and a series of recorded interviews with artists across multiple disciplines, all reflecting on the events of 2020 and it's aftermath, and how art and artmaking has changed as a result.

Jessica conceptualized, co-founded and produced the event alongside playwright and producer Michelle Cage.

The festival ran from April 9th-11th.

About The Show

It is fall 2020, and this high school theatre troupe has gone fully-virtual. Not only that, but they have been tasked with putting on a life-changing production of Macbeth, with the biggest budget they've ever had: $35. From the mind of Lindsey Beth Meyers comes a new comedy about an eclectic group of high schoolers and their eccentric theatre teacher, Violet. 

 

Jessica co-produced amd directed this new comedy web series about a high school theatre class in quarantine alongside writer Lindsey Beth Meyers and actress Sofia Gregory.

The series premiered on November 13th, 2020.

HERE WE GO's online Weekend Zoom Fest was a recurring one-day long festival and an opportunity for emerging artists to come together and collaborate during an isolating time for the theatre industry. These four festivals produced between May-August 2020 focused on black-identifying writers, international artists, and in August, young actors between the ages of 8-13!

The first ever HERE WE GO reading series presented four plays written by emerging artists. After we received over 300 submissions this winter, we decided to conclude our 2019 season with a reading series, so that we could include  as many of our submissions as possible.
