Creative Traffic Flow: Duets of Difference (presented by The Performance Project @ University Settlement)
Creative Traffic Flow is a theatre collective formed to create ensemble-driven performances with queer people of color and women as leaders. In their dance theater production, Duets of Difference, six performers selected from our University Settlement community programs are paired with someone unlike themselves in age, identity, faith, or culture. Witness how older adults from our Meltzer Center, young adults with special needs from our EXCEL Program, English Language Learners from our Adult Literacy Program, and homeless LGBTQ youth from our partner organization, The Door, share their voices and stories with one another. Experience how these unlikely duos hold space for each other to create duets instead of competing solos.
The Performance Project @ University Settlement answers the call to mentor, encourage, and diversify our art makers, leaders, educators and students. University Settlement is a 130 year-old cultural kitchen that is deeply rooted in our community, and the arts are represented across our entire body of work. Our creative community development approach fosters a sense of belonging, reciprocity and possibility for creative leaders from all walks of life at every stage in their development. Through our series of cutting-edge theater, music, dance and performance art events presented in a welcoming environment at little to no cost, we aim to break down barriers and build community among the diverse groups that call the Lower East Side their home.
