Soulprint Players

Soulprint Players on International InterPlay Day, October 2017

The Soulprint Players are InterPlay Atlanta's performance ensemble.
The Soulprint Players are an InterPlay performance ensemble. Using the improvisational forms of InterPlay, Soulprint Players use suggestions and information from the audience to create dance, song and story in the moment. Interplay performance is a vehicle for group exploration of themes both difficult and sublime. The ensemble consists of trained performers as well as those new to performance. A common thread in the ensemble is the willingness to explore truth in the moment and express that through the common language of the InterPlay forms.

In June 2014, our InterPlay Atlanta performance troupe went to the First Congregational church, which is one of the oldest African American churches in Atlanta and played a big role in the Civil Rights Movement to participate in the celebration, "I See You Free."  As InterPlayers, we helped commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
