Theater for the New City, Dream Up Festival

Shelter in Place

By Jennie Campbell
Directed by Christopher Busch
August 25 – September 14

This piece was inspired by the recent bomb scare at the Time Warner Center in New York City when the NYPD issued the directive “shelter in place” to people in the surrounding area. In a time when we are bombarded by news of violence and uprising, and seemingly paralyzed by a tumultuous political climate, we feel the responsibility to explore this moment’s impact. With both humor and critique, we hope to engage with our rapidly-evolving sociality and connect the events of today to what happened yesterday and the risks of our tomorrow.
