New York City
Collaborating with Sewanee and Rhodes, Centre sends students in the fall to New York City, where they complete Internships and take courses that focus on New York Theater and New York and Its Peoples, Past and Present. The City of New York (usually referred to, as New York City (NYC) or simply New York (NY) is the most populous city in the United States. Our students will have a great opportunity to be a part of this great city; while interning and studying, and enjoying all that New York has to offer.
This class will highlight the personal, cultural, and professional value of theater through attending eight live performances at a variety of venues: including Broadway, the center of the global commercial theater world, New York’s Public Theater, the non- profit home where many great artists and new plays have been developed and nurtured, as well as others. New York and Its Peoples, Past and Present, this course explores New York City by studying migrants and immigrants who have settled there since its founding. It explores how migrants and immigrants change New York, how the city changes them, and the significance of ethnic diversity in the city’s politics and culture. Dates, Aug 22- Dec 4, 2020.
