A play of cultures
East Hampton - posted Dec, 04 2013
EAST HAMPTON- What can we learn from traditions and rituals that can help create bridges between people? Travel to diverse countries to learn and address issues such as race, class, art and culture. Through research, film and guest speakers, students have created a one act play based on a variety of diverse countries and their rituals. Students have created characters based on their research as well as from people they have met in their lives. Returning from Africa, Hannah Myjak and Caryssa Propfe feel extremely connected to the women they portray. "Bridges" takes a look at different cultures such as Japan, China, Pakistan, Ireland, Native Americans and Africa. Along with the play, an open market will be featured before each performance. Handmade crafts, food, and a variety of other student made cultural items will be sold. Come join us for an original performance and a unique cultural experience. Performance dates are Dec. 14 and 15, Open Market at 5:30 p.m., play at 7 p.m., $7 adults, $5 seniors and students. Epoch Arts is located at 27 Skinner Street, East Hampton.
