Into the Past with the Bethany Seniors of Newark


Into the Past with the Bethany Seniors of Newark

Rutgers-NJIT Theatre Arts Program "From Page to Stage" students go "Into the Past with the Bethany Seniors of Newark" at Rutgers University-Newark, Bradley Hall Theatre (third floor) on Monday, December 10th at 10 AM. Doors open at 9:30 am.

Students spent several weeks learning elements of community-based play development with applied theatre practitioner, Lillian Ribeiro. They met with the local residents of the Newark's Bethany Senior Center to build relationships through "story circles", a storytelling model originally developed by Junebug Productions and Free Southern Theater. Students and seniors met again later in the semester to engage in deeper conversations in their one-on-one interviews. These monologues were transcribed word-for-word from students' handwritten notes and received feedback from the elders for revisions. These narratives received final approval for our students to share these personal narratives as a performed piece.

With the company of Newark's Bethany Senior Center elders, we invite YOU to witness this original community-based intergenerational performance work.
