John Jay College's Gerald W. Lynch Theatre
Sextet of Young Women from Former Yugoslavia  
(Bosnia, Croatia, Herzegovina, Kosovo, Serbia, and Slovenia)

Primitive Voice Workshop
How you can participate



Fall has arrived and with it friends from across the pond.   Despite a sluggish economy we at ALATetc are forging ahead but we need your help to realize our ambitions. 
Please join us this month in inaugurating the Institute for Crimes against Culture, an organization devoted to cross cultural awareness and to producing international encounters for theater groups.  ICAC is the brain child of our literary director, Dr. Seth Baumrin and is being launched by the US premiere of Slovenia's GLEJ Theatre's SKRIP Orkestra (SCREECH Orchestra) hosted by ALATetc and in concert with the Art and Justice Series at John Jay College's Gerald W. Lynch Theatre.

 SKRIP Orkestra is a collective of women who were children during the wars in former Yugoslavia who went on to become successful advocates for justice and social services for the youth.  In their performance, stories of lost childhoods and survival in the aftermath of the wars of the 1990s, in which neighbor was pitted against neighbor during a period of ethnic cleansing, are told through powerful songs and visual imagery-relevant while playful.  
Also this month Actor, Director, and Master Voice Teacher Jean-René Toussaint of Stemwerk in the Netherlands, returns to New York City, offering the Primitive Voice Workshop, private sessions and a rare opportunity to audition and work with him.  Jean-René's unique voice work is the result of twenty five years of research and development and is informed by his work with deaf adults and children.  You do not need to be a performer to benefit from this work.   

As you can see we are up to big things but we need your help to achieve our goals.  We need you to attend, we need you to volunteer, we need you to help us spread the word, and we are also in need of your financial help.  Your gift of $5 or more is fully tax deductable through our fiscal sponsor The Field.  
Won't you please support our great adventure?
