Kensington Fragments: Selections from The Olde Man and the Delaware River

In Ernest Hemingway's famous novel, 'The Old Man and the Sea,' the titular figure (named Santiago) says, "my big fish must be somewhere." Fisherman Santiago dedicates his life towards finding the fish that will change the tide of his life and career for the better. Santiago's story is one of fighting the odds, of maintaining perseverance in the face of extreme obstacles. The Renegade Company will use Hemingway's novel as a starting point to ask what is the “big fish” for the community? What are the greatest individual goals of community members? What is the larger goal of Kensington? How do we work towards achieving these goals while also understanding the obstacles in the way? Renegade has been working with residents in the Kensington neighborhood that have relationship to substance abuse and addiction as well as homelessness.

Renegade will be presenting a series of outdoor pop-up performances in Kensington and Center City igniting the conversation on how we treat and perceive the homeless and those that have relationship to substance abuse.
