Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents Federal Hall: The Democracy Project on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at 7:30pm.
The Democracy Project is a perspective-shifting odyssey through the 531 days when New York City was the nation's first capital; when the presidency was ne... [ + ]w; the slave trade was in debate; and the U.S. Constitution-and the rights of all America's inhabitants-hung in the balance.
Written by Tanya Barfield, Lisa D'Amour, Larissa FastHorse, Melissa James Gibson, Michael R. Jackson and Bruce Norris, and directed by Tamilla Woodard, this new play will premiere in November 2020 as part of the inaugural program for New Day at Federal Hall. This effort, led by the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy at Federal Hall, brings together the nation's finest storytellers to create an array of multidisciplinary new works probing the ideas, ideals, flaws, and contradictions of American democracy as forged at the site.
Works & Process invites this team of award-winning theater artists, joined by playwright David Henry Hwang, script consultant Adam Greenfield and producer Lynn Goldner to discuss their remarkable collaboration and present performance highlights.
