PACE Trip to see "Notes from the Field" (NYC Theatrical Performance)
Join PACE for a very special field trip to New York City to see a new play about the very education issues we discuss every day: Anna Deavere Smith's Notes From the Field - see a theater legend in an intimate space during the limited run of her New York Times Critic's Pick show!
"One of the most hailed and provocative theatre artists of our time, Anna Deavere Smith, leads a new installation of powerful first person storytelling in Notes from the Field. Urgent and inspiring, it depicts the personal accounts of students, parents, teachers and administrators caught in America’s school-to-prison pipeline. Investigating a justice system that pushes minors from poor communities out of the classroom and into incarceration, Notes from the Field shines a light on a lost generation of American youth. Drawn from interviews with more than 250 people living and working within a challenged system, Anna Deavere Smith continues her mastery of the documentary solo performance by stimulating awareness and ultimately, change for the better."
WHAT: Anna Deavere Smith's Notes From the Field; $125/person for ticket/transportation (please contact us for scholarship opportunities).
WHEN: Friday, December 9th @ 2pm Bus Departure from the Christina Cultural Arts Center for 8pm Show (returning by bus to CCAC immediately after performance, which is 2 Hours, 15 Minutes including one 15-minute intermission).
WHERE: Tony Kiser Theatre, 305 West 43rd Street, NY, NY
WHY: To mark the end of a busy PACE year by celebrating this combination of theater art and education/social justice advocacy!
