Culture Project Comes Home
Culture Project ended its 15th anniversary year, by reclaiming its two-stage theater on Bleecker Street and presenting James X, a play tracing the journey of one child through Ireland’s abusive institutional system, directed by Gabriel Byrne. In January, we staged a revival of one of our early productions, Rinde Eckert’s And God Created Great Whales, which was nominated for a Drama League Award for Distinguished Revival of a Play last month. We followed suit with the world premiere of Tennessee Williams’ In Masks Outrageous and Austere, and a master class of The Seagull, directed by legendary British director, Max Stafford-Clark. Our season ended this week with a one night event, Blueprint for Accountability: NYPD’s Stop and Frisk Policy, a high-voltage conversation focusing on the history and consequences of NYPD’s Stop and Frisk policy on communities of color and national policing practices. We couldn’t be more thrilled to celebrate our return with these productions, and the incredible artists, creatives, staff, and crew that have made them possible.
With our return to the space, we’ve also re-launched our website and graphic identity. This re-branding is designed to invigorate Culture Project’s family and friends with a rekindled sense of purpose and mission. As Culture Project continues to shine an artistic spotlight on injustice, we hope that our new website will inform, engage, and allow you to connect with us not only by keeping you up to date on current productions, our Blueprint for Accountability series, and Women Center Stage Festival and productions, but by giving you the ability to engage with us through our blog, social media, video, photo, and other features.
We look forward to seeing and hearing from you as we roll out our 2012-2013 season this Fall!
