Gi60: International One Minute Theatre Festival Announces 2017 US Edition
The annual Gi60: International One-Minute Theatre Festival, hosted by Brooklyn College's Department of Theater, and Leeds University in the United Kingdom will celebrate its 13th year by offering 150 original plays in three international locations, including Brooklyn College, Leeds University in the U.K., and the Hagley Theatre School in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The 50 one-minute plays performed at Brooklyn College's New Workshop Theater will be brought to life by an ensemble cast of current acting students, alumni, faculty and professional guest artists. From an annual submission pool of nearly 1,000 plays, this year's selection includes authors from England to Australia, and Los Angeles to Toronto. The event will be live-streamed, and all plays will be filmed and posted in late August on the Gi60 YouTube channel, and linked through the Gi60 site, www.gi60.blogspot.com.
Brooklyn College's performances will be held in the New Workshop Theater, accessible from the last stop of the #2 and #5 trains at Flatbush Avenue/Brooklyn College.
Admission is $15.00 regular, $12 for seniors and $10 for students with ID. All proceeds will benefit the Gi60 U.S./U.K. Collaboration Award, a scholarship given to theater students who embody the spirit of collaboration.
