Theatre Arts, Jonathan Horvath

Description

Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 by Anna Deavere Smith, the pioneer of documentary theatre. Drawing from interviews she conducted in the aftermath of Rodney King riots, Smith uses the real words of people who were there to explore the causes and ramifications of the most devastating civil unrest in American history. In this 90 minute production, York College Theatre students speak those words again to ask the question Rodney King famously asked during the height of the riots—a question that remains all too relevant in the age of Ferguson, Baltimore, and #BlackLivesMatter: “Can we all get along?”

Directed by Theatre Arts Adjunct Assistant Professor Jonathan Horvath.

Set Design by David Jones; Lighting Design by Ali Hall; Original Videography and projections by York College CT majors Leonard Collier & Shawn Barino, with Jonathan Horvath; Production Stage Manager York College Theatre Arts CLT Jessica Pecharsky; Technical Direction by York College Theatre Arts CLT Nate Hamm.
