a documentary web series about theatre and community
As part of her Ph.D. work and certificate in Interactive Technology and Pedagogy at the CUNY Graduate Center, Ashley has created a new documentary web series called Stage Left. To learn more about this project, please visit the web site, linked above.
Stage Left introduces viewers to the performances, artists, theatre-makers, and communities that are making work in places that go largely unnoticed by the mainstream. Stage Left examines the impact of theatre and performance on local communities. Each episode of Stage Left investigates a theatre company, performance tradition or performative ritual that is actively steeped in a particular community. Through highlighting the work of artists who are actively using theatre to engage, challenge and inspire their own communities, we hope to inspire and activate our viewers.
