La MaMa Kids Online: Nostalgia - Nostalgia will reveal instances of love through stories based on imagined or remembered reality from members of Loco7's Sirovich Senior Center's community of artists. This presentation is made up of twelve unique short toy theatre pieces that the participants created around the theme of nostalgia and love. When we search for the meaning of love we often reflect on the people who touched our lives; we learn from our parents, siblings, children, community, friends, life partners, mentors, national and religious views. This is the first part in Loco7's exploration of love told from the perspective of youth, seniors and middle aged artists. This intergenerational exploration will continue with various presentations, online and in person through December 2021. It will be an opportunity for broad sectors of the population to reflect upon their own values, and that of their family and global community through the power of love. Studies in Puppet Form and Performance, conducted by Federico Restrepo, and in partnership with Sirovich Senior Center, introduced participants to the use of puppetry and storytelling. This creative process and development of work took place over a 3 month period through weekly online meetings. click here

"Our Lady of 121st Street" - Contemporary Voices: A Virtual Theater Festival - Part 2 From Stephen Adly Guirgis comes "Our Lady of 121st Street," an irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy that paints a vivid comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard. Set in New York City, a beloved Harlem nun has died, and her former students gather for her funeral. But her body has gone missing, and the delay gives the assembled menagerie time to contemplate the lives and loves they've lost (and found). Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Guirgis delivers a dark comedy that reminds us that our mortality can be (maybe should be) hilarious - if we can just remember what's important. Carl Forsman, professor in the School of Drama, directs actors from Studios III and IV in the play, called "uproariously fun and viscerally piercing" by The Daily Beast. "Our Lady of 121st Street" will be filmed during the spring semester and offered via livestream in June. click here
