The Greene Space has partnered with TCG to present TCG Playwrights in Conversation, a series of events featuring TCG authors and featured artists. The evenings will be part of The Greene Space initiative "A New Theater of Sound.”
The next in this series, UE 92/12: 20th Anniversary Commemorative Performance will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Undesirable Elements, a series of community-specific theatre works that examine the lives of people born into one culture but living in another, either by choice or circumstance. Ping Chong, the Obie Award-winning creator of the series, along with special guests Saul Aviña; Angel Gardner, Leyla Modirzadeh and Tania Salmen – all previous participants in UE productions – will perform a special commemorative performance of the Undesirable Elements anniversary production by Ping Chong, Talvin Wilks and Sara Zatz for one night only. Following the performance, Alisa Solomon, director of Columbia’s Arts & Culture M.A. program at the Journalism School, will moderate a discussion and Q&A. Concluding with a book signing, the evening will also launch the TCG Books publication of Undesirable Elements: Real People, Real Lives. Real Theater., a collection of four Undesirable Elements scripts.
This commemorative anniversary performance is made possible with generous support from the Leon Levy Foundation.
