NYU to Produce The Class ProjectThe Class Project, to be presented by NYU Steinhardt's Program in Educational Theatre, runs October 24 - November 2, 2008. The Class Project is an original interview theatre project that will explore current perceptions of class and socioeconomic status among people living and/or working in New York City. A group of seven researchers/actors, under the guidance of Educational Theatre faculty member Joe Salvatore, will interview participants about their own understandings of how class and socioeconomic status affect their day-to-day lives. The interviews will be recorded, transcribed, then pieced together to create a performance script. The script will then be performed by the researchers/actors.
NYU's The Class Project runs October 24-25 at 8pm, October 26 at 3pm, October 30-31 at 8pm, November 1 at 8pm and November 2 at 3pm in the Black Box Theatre at 82 Washington Square East. Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 with valid NYU ID. For more information and to make ticket reservations, please call (212) 998-5281.
NYU's production will be directed by faculty member Joe Salvatore. The cast will feature the talented undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students from The Steinhardt School's Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions.
