Photo Coverage: Nilaja Sun's No Child Opens
"No Child is a tour-de-force look into the New York City Public Education system by the acclaimed teaching-artist and solo-performer, Ms. Sun, who transforms into the teachers, students, parents, administrators, janitors, and security guards who inhabit our public schools every day and are shaping the future of America," state press notes. "Epic Theatre Center commissioned the development of No Child as a result of Sun's unique work in one New York City's toughest schools, Martin Luther King, Jr. High School, where Epic maintains an extensive arts-ed residency."
Sun's New York credits include Einstein's Gift, Time and The Conways (Epic Theatre Center), The Cook (Intar), The Adventures of Barrio Grrrl! (Summer Play Festival), and "Law and Order- SVU." As a solo performer, her credits include Blues for a Gray Sun, La Nubia Latina, Black and Blue, Insufficient Fare, Due to the Tragic Events of..., and Mixtures. She is a Princess Grace Award winner and a native New Yorker.
