Peter Dizozza has been selected to develop a new musical theater project, “From Suez to Candlewood,” which he will present as a staged reading with music and dialogue at Theater for the New City (TNC), in the East Village of Manhattan, NYC on September 25th, 2021 at 8PM. The director of the performance is Joe Battista with Choreography by Terry Lee King.

“From Suez to Candlewood” is an environmental musical theater project originating at TNC’s 2021 Lower East Side Festival of the Arts.   The story explores the construction of canals and of dams creating lakes. A non-binary couple holds stock in a corporation that owns The Suez Canal and Candlewood Lake, Connecticut, both of which are “man-made.” When the couple travels from Egypt to the United States to connect with the lake they confront amphibious siblings who inhabit a flooded town beneath the lake.

This program is made possible by the New York City Artist Corps. Members of the public can participate in City Artist Corps Grants programming by following the hashtag #CityArtistCorps and @NYCulture on social media.
