Gilder/Coigney International Theatre Award

The Flats Community Garden, 554 West 53 St. (SE Corner 11th Avenue)
Hosted by Melody Brooks, Co-chair, G/C International Theatre Award Subcommittee

Enjoy a virtual trip to Colombia, home of the 2014 Awardee Patricia Ariza, via an engaging mini-seminar on the country’s history and culture. It’s been created just for our guests by Diego Rojas* so we can understand and appreciate Patricia’s forty years of theatre activism in the context of Colombia’s struggles. After we hear from Diego, we’ll step out into the beautiful garden (with a running stream!) to hear the words of LPTW members from around the world in a short performance of WomenSpeak!

$25 Donation includes Melody’s famous SANGRIA and locally-sourced (i.e., from the ‘hood) Spanish cuisine!

 

Send check made payable TO LPTW, c/o New Perspectives Theatre Company

456 West 37 Street, NY, NY 10018
