The 9/11 Performance Project:
The Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College presents The 9/11 Performance Project, a series of three complementary plays, from Friday, September 9 - Sunday, September 11, 2011 at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 899 Tenth Avenue, NYC. Tickets are available at www.ticketcentral.com or by phone at 212-279-4200.
Co-Produced with Professor Seth Baumrin, Chair of the Department of Communications and Theatre Arts at John Jay College, The 9/11 Performance Projectis a set of three very different yet complementary plays: TheDomestic Crusaderswritten by Wajahat Ali, Another Lifewritten by Karen Malpede, and Demolition of the Eiffel Towerwritten by Jeton Neziraj. The Projectis a vehicle for cultural diplomacy that advocates reform of the post-September 11th political atmosphere and promotes a return to critical thinking, adherence to the rule of law, respect for civil liberties and upholding human rights in the United States and abroad. The goal of the performances and public dialogue is to create an experience that will engage the public and help society enact more progressive thinking and action in the search for understanding current U.S. and world policies, and their consequences, and furthering the understanding of Islam as it is lived today. A JUST-US Dialoguewill follow most performances. Two student productions and a series of free panel discussions will round out The 9/11 Performance Project.
