Saturday, February 11th
Inwood Branch, NYPL, 4790 Broadway (1 block from Dyckman St)
3:00-4:30 PM Theatre Panel: Shakespeare Saturdays Salutes- "Step It Up for Gender Equality"
The U.N. initiative "Step It Up for Gender Equality" adds an important voice for women's rights, among other gender concerns. Shakespeare Saturdays takes a look at Gender Equality Issues in Theatre with a panel of Women Designers. Please join us for a panel discussion where Women Directors, Costumers, Fight Choreographers, Writer/Historian/Dramaturg and Resident Composer Donna Stearns tell their stories. We're making it fun with a fashion show too (since Fashion Week will be in full swing!). The runway segment will showcase attire and weaponry you might see in a Shakespeare production, as the panelists point out how the Design Team makes their decisions.
Event is free and open to the public
