DTE Teens Perform This Friday

Check out details on PxP.

Putting on a Play

For the last month, I’ve been working with an incredible group of students/artists/friends on staging Maria Irene Fornes’s play, What of the Night?

Now all our work & passion will be funneled into two performances this weekend.

Friday & Saturday, 7pm, at the Cornell Paper & Box Company loading dock .

It’s right behind Valentino Park & Pier, actually in the same exact place we put the stage for the Red Hook Fest, for those of you who’ve been to it in the last three (four?) years.

What of the Night? is a beautiful play, and the cast is wonderful. Plus it’s a unique place to see some theater, with the sun setting right over your shoulder as you sit less than fifty yards from the water.  Come on out to support some emerging artists, Red Hook-style.

Falconworks Coming Around the Bend

The Brooklyn Paper has a short piece on Red Hook community arts organization DTE Falconworks and their upcoming piece, Off the Hook.  The shows are scheduled for November 20th and 21st at PS 15 here in Red Hook.

“Off the Hook” is a youth playwriting program with involvement from some of the same great students who participate in our programs at Dancee Theatre Etcetera.  Students get the opportunity to work with mentor/dramaturgs as they craft their pieces, and then see their visions realized in a full (though bare-bones) production of their plays.

Check out OTH to support these creative young people- head over to the Falconworks website for details or to reserve a ticket.

Free Theater For Red Hook Teens Starts Tomorrow

The In Transition Theatre Workshop begins tomorrow in the DTE studio.

Over the course of 7 weeks, professional actors/DTE-artists-in-residence The Glass Company will lead acting and storytelling workshops with young people ages 15-20.  Using theater to explore times of “transition” in life, whether they be moving on to college, a job, a new home or a new relationship, the workshops will be a forum for exploration and fun.

Meetings are on Saturdays from 2-5pm.  There’s still room if you or a teenager you know is interested in participating.  Contact me- jon@dtetc.org or (718) 643-6790 x 113
