Generation 2 Generation
What is G2G?
1. To support the development of new and emerging plays and theatrical performances(referred to hereafter as artworks) in NYC made by NYC based artists.
2. To support the creative development of emerging artists giving them exposure to the process of developing and producing new art works as well as providing them with mentorship and guidance by active New York City Artists.
3. To connect the youth of the community with the themes and ideas relevant to emerging and current artworks in NYC by creating a dialogue between artists and communities where they can explore, question, and deconstruct said themes and ideas.
How does it work?
TTT will select a new production where one of the members of the creative team will serve as the sponsored artist and mentor. This sponsored artist must have a major creative role in the production such as: Director, Playwright, Choreographer, or Composer/Musical Director. The Sponsored artist then serves as a mentor for an emerging artist, a high school or college student, taking them through the entire process of creating their piece! This same artist will then lead a series of educational workshops called The ConnectArt Workshop Series at Gotham professional Arts Academy in Brooklyn, NY. The purpose of the ConnectArt Workshop Series is to engage high school students in a conversation that connects them to the themes of new artworks in NYC. Through the workshops the sponsored artist gets an opportunity to explore the material of their recent TTT production with students and help them to develop their performance and acting skills.
