On Thursday, Sept. 20, Watkinson’s Creative Arts Program (CAP) seminar students went to the Hartford Public Library to see a dress rehearsal of (US), a new site-specific performance piece by the Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP).
The JDPP company workshopped a version of this piece last winter at Watkinson in a production called Beacon, exploring the themes of inclusiveness, diversity, and free speech through movement, music, and writing. Pieces by two West Hartford students, Remie Hochman (’19) and Charles Sinche (’21), from Beacon were selected to be included in the professional production of (US).
In the audience talkback after the dress rehearsal, Artistic and Executive Director of JDPP Judy Dworin and the company thanked the students for the exploratory work they had done and the writing they contributed.
