Tectonic Theater Project Kicks Off Online Forum THE LARAMIE PROJECT: REFLECTIONS; Deadline 10/11
Tectonic Theater Project is proud to announce The Laramie Project: Reflections. Reflections is an online forum to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Matthew Shepard's death. On the 11th anniversary, Tectonic honored Matthew by premiering The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later with simultaneous readings of the new play in all 50 states and eight different countries. Four years after that momentous night, Tectonic has once again decided to implement a community-based, multi-media art project to remember Matthew.
For The Laramie Project: Reflections, Tectonic is asking for all contributions to be posted by the end of the day on Friday, October 11th.
All contributions are welcome, but new visitors to LaramieProject.org, the host site for Reflections, will first need to join the online community before posting content. The Laramie Project: Reflections can be found at: http://community.laramieproject.org/forum/topics/the-laramie-project-reflections.
Tectonic is thrilled to host this project and we can't wait to get your contributions to The Laramie Project: Reflections. For more information, contact Matt Freeman at 212-579-6111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tectonic Theater Project is dedicated to developing innovative works that explore theatrical language and form, fostering an artistic dialogue with our audiences on the social, political and human issues that affect us all. In service to this goal, Tectonic supports readings, workshops, and full theatrical productions, as well as training for students around the country in our play-making techniques.
Tectonic was founded in 1991 by Moisés Kaufman and Jeffrey LaHoste. Tectonic refers to the art and science of structure and was chosen to emphasize the company's interest in construction-- how things are made, and how they might be made differently.
Reflections is a collection of responses to a question posed to our online community: What does The Laramie Project mean to you? By encouraging responses through stories, words, images, pictures, and videos, we hope to create a unique and collaborative montage that promotes equality and justice in our world and in our art!
