Event Category: Arts
Since 1992 we have been touring productions in libraries and community centers throughout the five boroughs
of New York City. While these theater pieces allow us to reach many audience members, many of whom
would not traditionally attend live theatre, these performances are usually one time events, offering short lived
moments of connection.
Summer Camp provides a completely different way of interacting with young people; we meet with the same
group of young people every day for five weeks. This extended time is a real gift, allowing us to foster a
deeper understanding of performance and theater making in the young people. We focus on the art of
collaboration and build an ensemble of campers who collectively develop their own original performance. Our
classes are more than a sharing of skills, we seek to challenge the young people to articulate their opinions,
make artistic decisions, and become active members in creating theater.
