The Continuum Project, Inc. was officially born March 28, 2008, organically sprouting forth from the great success of IN THE CONTINUUM, a 2 person, 11 character play co-written and performed by our co-founder, Nikkole Salter.
The power that simple, but profound production demonstrated in its ability to bridge a professional artistic aesthetic with direct community engagement caused Ms. Salter to want to build a space where that could happen all of the time.
Ms. Salter, with incredibly talented artists and professionals on board, partnered with African Ancestry, Inc. and Piper Theatre Production, Inc. to launch and facilitate The CP's first initiative - The Legacy Program: Residency - in Brooklyn, NY on March 2, 2009. The LP: Residency is currently in it's 7th Cycle and operates bi-annually at William Alexander Middle School 51 and The Math & Science Exploratory School in Brooklyn, NY. The LP: Reflection - where the teaching artists that facilitate the Residency are commissioned to create professional work inspired by their Residency experience - launched June 25, 2010 with the first public concert reading of Glenn Gordon's RE:DEFINITION at the The Old Stone House in Brooklyn. RE:DEFINITION, a play in rhythm and rhyme, received its workshop production by the Hip Hop Theater Festival on October 28-29th 2011 in NYC at La Mama. The Legacy Program: Residency was featured on the PBS series, "Finding Your Roots," hosted by Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. which aired April 29, 2012.
The Continuum Project, Inc. is a
non-profit organization that provides innovative cultural programming for the unification, enrichment and empowerment of the global African Diaspora.
