ASTEP has partnered with La Guardia Performing Arts Center and Kingsborough Community College on a service-learning project that will culminate in an interactive performance on November 6-9, 2013 in NYC. The project is called Unpacking “Home” and will include volunteer experiences at NYC homeless shelters for a cast of 16 artists between the ages of 20-30 years old.
The ensemble will volunteer at partnering homeless shelters in NYC to explore and better understand the meaning of “home” and why we choose to be without it; or what it feels like to have it taken away. The ensemble will then devise a play using material gained from their volunteer experiences.
Ensemble members will co-create the play so ASTEP is recruiting artists who enjoy improvisation and collaboration.
