Theatre - Rites of Passage/Coming of Age

Group Devising Across Nations: Rites of Passage/Coming of Age is a collaboration between Emily Schorr Lesnick at Riverdale Country School and Isbael de Moraes Rodrigues at Oberoi International School, who serendipitously met as classmates in graduate school at New York University after being in India! The actors in their respective 10th grade theatre classes will utilize technology to communicate and devise a collaborative theatre piece that explores rites of passage and coming of age traditions, asking "Which themes are culturally specific and which are universal?" This project will launch in Winter 2016.
