For the past five years, I’ve collaborated with The New Victory Theater as a “Research Teaching Artist.” Let me walk you through a normal day.
Being a TA, I travel the city hoping to provide a range of experiences that mirror the formative and meaningful experiences of my own youth.
In the September of 2017, NYU Steinhardt’s Educational Theatre Program hosted a roundtable event to explore theater for young audiences in today’s world.
This unconventional investment in human capital has turned out to be beneficial to the research and to my own professional development.
Increasingly, arts and cultural organizations are asked whether they contribute to the greater good. Answering that question is rarely simple, particularly at a time when public and private funders alike press organizations to prove that something they did actually caused the change that they would like to claim.
You might say that the New Victory has a “thing” for raising the stakes. Who else puts wild, urban circuses on the beautifully restored stage of a turn-of-the-century theater?
For 21 years, Hands On has been working with the New Vic to provide sign-interpreted performances. I’m thrilled to share more about our partnership.
