THEATER OF WITNESS, a presentation with Teya Sepinuck
Start Date: 2/9/2015Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 2/9/2015End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:
Teya Sepinuck's presentation is the kickoff for the three-week residency, RADICAL DEMOCRACY AND HUMANISM: INTERSECTIONS BETWEEN PERFORMANCE AND ACTION.  From www.theatreofwitness.org: "Theater of Witness is a form of performance developed by founder and artistic director Teya Sepinuck in which the true life stories of those whose voices haven’t been heard in society are performed by the storytellers themselves as a way for audiences to bear witness to significant social issues. The theater productions are scripted from individual and group interviews as well as a variety of creative process techniques and consist of scripted text, music, movement, imagery and film projection.'

Teya Sepinuck has been creating Theater of Witness productions in the United States, Poland and Northern Ireland since 1986. Performers have included: refugees and immigrants, survivors and perpetrators of violence, prisoners and their families, ex-combatants, members of the security forces and victims of war and conflict, former perpetrators and those healing from abuse, elders, runaway girls, and those living without homes. This work often brings former enemies together onstage who explore conflict from a multiplicity of perspectives, always with the purpose of shining a light on the possibility of deep connection and reconciliation.
