On December 1, Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater in partnership with the United States Department of State sent four Arena Stage teaching artists to Zagreb, Croatia. The teaching artists, who are in Zagreb through December 20, have been working with young adults with physical disabilities to create the play entitled Disable(d) Prejudice. The Arena Stage teaching artists have also facilitated workshops with local college students, professional actors and teaching artists, all based on Arena Stage’s Voices of Now devised theater program.
The performance will be followed by a moderated talkback with the audience centered around the complications and prejudices physically disabled individuals face in Croatia.
Now in its 11th year, Voices of Now equips participants to write and perform autobiographical theater that poses questions about social, cultural and emotional issues, with a focus on creating projects that bring voice to issues of relevancy for the young artists involved. Voices of Now first partnered with the U.S. Department of State to go international in October 2012 when four Arena Stage artists went to Kolkata, Patna, New Delhi and Hyderabad, India to create original plays inspired by the cities in which they took place, and conversations are ongoing for a future partnership in India.
