During the current summer session, eight students in Tony Goode’s course “Creating Meaning through Community Drama” have conducted life history interviews with New York City seniors, ranging from members of SAGE, the nation’s first Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Senior Center, to members of Raises Gowanus, a center serving a Hispanic community in Brooklyn. The students are now busily creating an original piece of reminiscence theatre that honors these seldom-told histories.
Come see a special performance of the work and join in the dialog that follows!
