Judith Sloan Storytelling Workshop
December 2, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Queens Council on the Arts’ Artist Commissioning Program Awardee Judith Sloan will host the program’s first artist event. Sloan invites attendees to participate in the development process of her artist commission entitled “It Can Happen Here,” a theatrical performance developed from gathering stories of anguish and defiance in the face of xenophobia and repression. The event will be held on Saturday, December 2 at York College Fine Arts Gallery from 3:00 – 4:30pm.
During the event, Sloan will present short excerpts of the work in progress accompanied by violist Andrew Griffin. The presentation will be followed by a participatory storytelling workshop and dialogue around the theme of “It Can Happen Here” where community members can share both painful and joyful stories in our current social and political climate. This content will inform the final work, which is scheduled to premiere in Queens in Sept. 2018 in the genre of a “dark cabaret.”
RSVP encouraged but not required.
