The company has just returned from scenic Amherst, Mass, where we had a blast performing Milk-n-Honey as part of the 17th Annual Ko Festival of Performance. Many thanks to Sabrina, Ellen di Giovanni, and the fantastic intern staff.
We’re having a new 5-day LightBox Approach workshop. Join us this July in beautiful Amherst, Mass for Physical Approaches to Classic Texts: Macbeth. Open to all ages and experience levels.
Last week, we completed our pilot of the Food Theater Project Youth Workshop Series with the enthusiastic and extremely talented teens of Jane Addams High School. Their gave a stellar performance of their original work in front of their entire school, and we are incredibly proud of them.
We can’t wait to share this fun and educational program with more teens throughout the five boroughs!
LightBox recently attended the W. K. Kellogg Foundation Food and Society 2008 Gathering for Good Food, where we shared highlights of the Food Theater Project with 550 food advocates from around the country. It was truly inspiring to connect with so many people working in this important field!
The Food Theater Project Youth Workshops are now up and running. The pilot is in its second week at Jane Addams High School in the Bronx, and is going better than we could have possibly imagined. Check back soon for feedback from our participants!
LightBox is participating in the Baum Forum Schools, Food, and Community Conference on April 12th at the Columbia University Teachers College. We’ll be sharing information about our Youth Workshop Series, the LightBox Approach, and Milk-N-Honey, our original play about the politics and pleasures of eating.
LightBox will be taking Milk-N-Honey on the road to the KO Festival of Performance in Amherst, Massachusetts this summer. There, Producing Artistic Director Ellen Beckerman will lead a workshop in the LightBox Approach.
