THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY
Crystal Field, Executive Artistic Director, Presents:
Affirmation Theatre Company returns this April with Graphite, a play about the experiences of students of color who attend performing arts programs in predominantly white universities.
Graphite is a powerful and poignant devised piece about what it means to create art in a white space. Making its world premiere, the play will run April 11th through April 21st in the Cabaret Theatre at Theatre for the New City.
The Graphite Ensemble has worked tirelessly for the past year collecting and compiling true accounts from students of color at predominantly white universities across the country. They invite us to reflect and take action in our own lives with a heightened awareness of the persistent forms of systemic privilege that cause great harm to all those seen as “other.”
