Red Shirt Remembrance Project: Darfur Dedication
Monday, May 20, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Red Shirt Entertainment’s mission is to use art and performance as a vehicle to strengthen community awareness while evoking discussion and social change. Through the Remembrance Project, writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj seeks to educate the audience about the true details of genocide with a show that features music, poems and testimonies. In the third installment of a series that has already explored the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide of 1994, Red Shirt takes a closer look at the horrors of Darfur. The 20 person cast will be comprised completely of women, with a portion of all ticket sales going toward the Darfur Women Action Group, a charity dedicated to helping victims of the tragic events that are still happening in Sudan today. The first two installments received much acclaim from actual survivors and members of the United Nations alike. We are expecting much of the same this time.
NOTE: Though tickets will be available at the door the night of the performance, this unfortunately will not guarantee you a seat. To avoid standing for the duration of the production, please purchase your tickets prior to May 20th.
