Fun at 52nd Street Project
I did an excerpt from my solo play, Running Into Me at 52nd Street Project a couple of weeks ago. My audience were a group of teens from Amerikids. Rajendra (Co-Artistic Director of Red Shirt Productions) and Jonas (Co-creator of Be.Do.Fly) invited me as their very first guest artist. I had the time of my life! Amerikids and Be.Do.Fly are devoted to empowering young people by providing vital tools for responsible decision making and educating them using the arts. I had to run out to a play right after the performance so I didn’t have the opportunity to talk with them my audience. I could feel from their responses how attentive and insightful they were. I intend to return soon to hang out and talk with them and hopefully facilitate a Play Solo Residency: teaching young people the basics of writing and performing personal narrative.
