The Wait Room – Short Film and Panel Discussion
September 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for a short (14-mins) film of highlights from a previous performance of The Wait Room, a site-specific dance honoring women with incarcerated loved ones making its East Coast premier in Ossining, NY.
After the screening, join us in a discussion about the realities of families fractured by incarceration including:
· Flyaway’s choreographer, Jo Kreiter, and members of the Flyaway Productions team, who’ve been directly affected by incarcerated family members
· Emily Joy Weiner, co-Founder and Artistic Director of Houses on the Moon theater company, currently developing a new piece titled SHARED SENTENCES developed directly from stories by and interviews with a wide range of individuals, each with an incarcerated loved one.
· Kambri Crews, comedic storyteller and New York Times best-selling author who often incorporates the reality of her deaf father’s imprisonment into her performance and publicly documents the frustration of securing his medical care.
Presented by Bethany Arts Community, as part of Flyaway’s weeklong residency.
Bethany Arts Community’s residency programs are made possible by ArtsWestchester with support from Westchester County Government.
