USA: CollideOscope Repertory Theatre Company presents Free Play: Open Source Scripts Towards an Anti
NYU Steinhardt’s Master’s in Drama Therapy Program has launched a new theatre company named CollideOscope Repertory Theatre Company (CRTC), whose mission is to advance racial justice and healing through performance. CRTC is kicking off its first season on October 9 with a virtual production by award-winning playwright Idris Goodwin titled, Free Play: Scripts Towards an Anti-Racist Tomorrow. The production includes five short plays for multi-generational audiences to spark conversations about race in America.
“We started CollideOscope Repertory Theatre Company to create a space of belonging for students, alums, and artists who identify as Black, indigenous, and/or people of color,” said Nisha Sajnani, director of the drama therapy program at NYU Steinhardt. “Right now, the country is facing a widespread racial reckoning. It’s important that we maintain this momentum in a way that restores and supports those involved.”
Tickets are free for all events but advance registration is required.
