“Out of the Justice of Women” is a collaboration with Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts’ students and teacher Michael Tester, and part of WWBA’s “Celebrating Women with Walt Whitman” series.
Michael Tester will produce and direct a theatrical presentation composed by students, which focuses on Whitman’s poetic references to women and features live music. The suffragist-inspired performance will be an interactive environmental experience.
Art students will create the scenic backdrop to the performance, in addition to creating new artwork relating to the theme, which will be on display at the Birthplace for the following two months.
Reception with refreshments, 6:30 pm
Audience Q&A to follow 7 pm performance
This event is free and open to the public.
