WAY TO HEAVEN
OPEN CALL FOR ACTORS and other ARTS PEOPLE young and older.
As part of Holocaust Remembrance Day January 2020, we are creating an immersive, all-arts experience based on the hauntingly original play, Way to Heaven (Himmelweg) by Juan Mayorga.
In 1942, a Nazi concentration camp 30 miles north of Berlin, created a fake news story to hide what was actually happening. They invited Red Cross inspectors to tour their camp while the Jewish prisoners were forced to present “a play” depicting the camp as self-governed and supportive of the families held there. A week later all 100 participants in “the play” were sent to their death at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
PushPush is an award-winning arts organization with partners in LA, Chicago, Berlin. We are a unique arts organization that challenges creative people to use their voice, cross disciplines, and to dig deep.
How to get involved

A key component of this new arts space is our goal to create a campus-wide common project that will be presented as a destination arts event for the entire city and beyond. We will spend a year creating this large scale, multi-room, immersive show using film, art, performance and more — all in collaboration to tell a single story. In the coming months, we will explore several Seedworks’ offerings to find the best story for the teams to begin their collaboration.
Project ideas already submitted and to be discussed in more detail:
— Elephant in the Room. This original script by College Park native, Sahr Ngaujah (Luke Cage, House of Payne, Broadway’s Moulin Rouge! And Fela!) along with Jean Marie Keevins (Jim Henson Studios) tell the epic story of a young immigrant girl and her new life in American with nothing to remember her African past except the three toy elephants she’s brought along on her journey. Lion King meets An Inconvenient Truth.
— METAMERICA. An experiential arts experiment proposed by Nathan Sharratt. METAMERICA is an immersive and multidisciplinary artistic experience centered on the idea that reality is fluid and defined not by static empirical data, but by perception, environment, and projected experience. America is a geographic and political region, but within its borders, people often live very different realities thanks to filter bubbles, confirmation bias, and more.
— Seethroughme. An enlightening journey through the sexual and spiritual influences of young girls by College Park native, Shelby Hofer.
— Dirt. Human trafficking is a growing problem, especially right here in Atlanta. This original script by Atlanta native, Deborah Kampmeier (Split, Hounddog, Queen Sugar) will shed light on the underworld of selling human beings in modern America.
— Heroine is an original series by Tim Habeger and Shelby Hofer that reflect the struggles of the creative class in today’s Atlanta. Centered on the headquarters of a fictional international book company whose staff, writers, illustrators, and friends fight to keep the lights on while creating original works of fiction and more. The series’ weekly episodes are based on real stories from Atlanta’s own creative people who are introduced through portrayals, guest appearances, and current work. The show is a platform for creative artists. It’s a digest of what we have to offer and our national and international partnerships. It’s a new kind of show created by and for culture makers of all kinds and the fans who follow current trends.
— All for One is an original series by Seedwork’s member, Ruth Hernandez. 4 women take the law into their own hands when faced with a rapist who gets a slap on the wrist sentence. Pursued by a veteran detective, Carmen Olvia who finds herself torn between the letter of the law and the spirit of justice. To be told in multiple rooms throughout the space as an exploration of gender inequality, criminal justice, and equal opportunities in the film and television industry.
