Applications due June 30, 2019
Princeton University's Program in Theater is calling for alumnae in the arts to participate in a theatrical project celebrating co-education at Princeton.
The first co-ed class arrived at Princeton fifty years ago, in the fall of 1969. In celebration of this milestone, the theater program is inviting applications for participation in a project in which students will be paired with professional artist alumnae to research and create short performances about women who graduated from Princeton in the first few years of co-education at Princeton. The process will take place steadily over the 2019-20 academic year and will culminate in evenings of performance in the Berlind Theatre at McCarter Theatre Center in April 2020 and potentially at Reunions 2020.
The student partners and professional artist alumnae will represent a broad cross-section of lived experience at Princeton and beyond; special attention will be paid to identifying research subjects with overlooked or suppressed experiences. We anticipate alumnae being on campus a minimum of five times during the process, and there is a potential of university-funded travel to visit research subjects.
TO APPLY: send an introductory email letting us know what kind of participation you’d enjoy (writing? directing? performing? something else?) plus a bio to Jane Cox (email@example.com) and Suzanne Agins (firstname.lastname@example.org) BY JUNE 30, 2019. Special care will be taken to match student and alumnae partners with similar interests. We will let all alumnae know whether or not we will be able to match you with a student by August 15th. Questions? Email Suzanne Agins (email@example.com).
