In July 2008, a group of eleven theatre artists from East Africa (Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda) will come to Dartmouth College and NYC for a three and a half week residency. The first two weeks of the residency (June 30 to July 14) will occur at Dartmouth, to facilitate artistic exchanges and dialogue among and between the artists and Dartmouth theatre students. After Dartmouth, the artists will continue the developmental residency in NYC with the support and assistance of 651 ARTS/Africa Exchange. The ten days will culminate in a series of work-in-progress presentations of their work at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center CUNY, July 21 and 22. By the end of the residency, our hope is that the East African artists will have developed concrete and useful relationships that can be translated into practical opportunities to build further connections between the U.S. and East Africa.
