NO HOUSING NO PEACE  brings together an intergenerational ensemble of performers to share a history of events and conflicts in Tompkins Square from 1988 to 1991.

The performance, which lasts an hour, draws its text from the New York Times coverage of events in the park.  The story raises issues of policing, gentrification, homelessness, and the central question of ‘what a park is for.’

Following each performance, Ryan will be baking and serving dessert, and the ensemble will host an open conversation on concerns touched upon in the performance.

 

Ensemble: JC Augustin, Gustavo Flores, Noch Foster Jr., Eddie Glass, Justin Jones, Saarah Medrano, Josefina Montesino, Mikayla Rose, Parker Rhodes, Imani Vieira, and Yelena Virovlyanskaya

Directed by Ryan Gilliam
