    POPC develops three new works: one film, one theater, one dance. All three pieces are created by women actively making the work that they want to see more of today.

    So GRATEFUL!


    We are so grateful  for all of the support we've received thus far! We have big goals for big dreams, and even if we don't hit our monetary goal, we get to keep all donations received! Your encouragement and belief in us fills us with the strength we need to continue pushing forward and pursuing our dreams. Amazing, fun, challenging, exciting, and new things are on the horizon. We're so glad you're here to be a part of the process. We love you! -POPC
    POPC (Power of People Combined) was founded by Claire Jamison in February, 2017, to amplify the voices of underrepresented people through art and performance. In December, 2017 POPC launched the Power Theater Company, which requires that each production casts majority performers of color, and encourages performers of all gender identities and expression to collaborate. We believe that sharing the stories of POC perspectives, and representing those voices on stage who have been suppressed within our society, will help our culture progress towards a more inclusive and equally represented community.

    POPC's community has grown into a beautiful chain of relationships, and now we need your support for the projects we are developing.

    A HYACINTH IN THE MOUNTAINS

    A new play by Claire Jamison.
    This August, A Hyacinth in the Mountains will receive it's first production at the 14th St. Y presented by Broadway Bound Theater Festival. The play centers around Arya, a young Yazidi woman, who escapes ISIS captivity and embarks on a journey to rebuild her life and regain her sense of self-worth. Throughout the play, the audience is swept in and out of the waves of time, into Arya's memories, as she processes the warped reality of her crippling past.


    REMEDIES

    An online film series created by Niara Seña, directed by Claire Jamison.
    Remedies began development in late 2017, and in the spring of 2018 we began filming the first episodes. Remedies follows the lives of three African American women as they navigate life, love, and drawing the bridge between the two. With a minimal crew (Claire and Niara producing, Jovon Outlaw as Director of Photography, and Khalid Seña as grip and PA), Remedies is developing as an intimate and personal series, with the hopes to continue into several more seasons exploring the absurdities of life, love, and sisterhood.

    DISTRACTIONS

    A series of movement-based works developed by Sophia Zukoski.
    Distractions explores the influences in our lives that divert us from intimacy and human connection. Devotion, the first piece in the series, premiered at Chen Dance Center in April, 2018.
