Troy

Inspired by Euripides’  The Trojan Women,  where a community is reckoning with devastating loss, the ensemble ventured into their neighborhoods and interviewed everyday New Yorkers about the meanings of these themes in their lives. Those interviews, as well as the original writing of the ensemble, are the inspiration for the piece, which takes the assaults on our young men of color as the inciting crisis and explores the community dealing with what it is like to worry for the safety of their children.

About ACTivate 

ACTivate, an expansion of Public Works, is a new tier of the groundbreaking initiative designed to bind our community together by connecting us to the great issues and dilemmas of our time. Expanding the participant’s role in the artistic process, ACTivate fills in the gap between the year-round classes and annual Delacorte pageant in September, engaging the ensemble in every aspect of the creative process and culminating in an original piece. This year, the ensemble will present Troy in The Public’s LuEsther Hall for four invited presentations only, June 10-12.
