La Mama Experimental Theatre Club, Inc.
December 21, 2010
La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club has been a haven for artists from around the world. This year, La MaMa hosted an extraordinary event: the conference Acting Together on the World Stage: Theatre and Peacebuilding in Conflict Zones, which brought together almost 400 people from 30 countries where doing theatre is a dangerous political act. In fact, just this week, two of the artists who were part of the conference from the Belarus Free Theatre were arrested in Belarus. The importance of having this conference at La MaMa and sharing the stories of hope for peace and reconciliation can be under valued. I personally will take a greater part in doing theatre in conflict zones as a result of this experience.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
going to see shows at La MaMa, attending the Conference, being involved in projects of the theatre.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them more money so they could expand their work and do even more.
Professional with expertise in this field & I engaged with artists from around the world, opening me up to new possibilities and ways of looking at life and conflict.
