Agents & Assets

Location:  Los Angeles, CA
Project Description: 

An investigation into the advent of the U.S. crack epidemic, Agents & Assets was originally developed and performed in Los Angeles in 2001. In 2002, it was remounted in Detroit, recast for the audience with a combination of LAPD members and Detroit residents from communities that had been heavily impacted by drugs and drug policy. The project achieved significant local community involvement in the production, increased community engagement in the issues raised, and galvanized relationships among people active in arts, drug policy reform advocates, drug recovery program participants, and professionals in Detroit.
