Performing NYC: The Politics and Psychology of Doing the Inconceivable
In New York City (not to mention the country and world), we are living in a time of heightened separation and sometimes ugly conflict. Black and white. Rich and poor. Police and inner-city youth. Seemingly unable to come together in ways that move our city and people forward. The foundation for these conflicts are political and economic, their impact profoundly emotional and subjective. With few solutions in sight, it is easy to despair, to feel desperate, to be cynical or depressed.
How do we grow a city in so much pain?
When Dr. Lenora Fulani is asked this question, her answer is simple. We perform. This is the “therapy” she has been offering New York City for over three decades. Whether on the streets, at a police station, or in a corporate boardroom, Dr. Fulani doesn’t try to fix what is broken; she challenges everyone to do the seemingly inconceivable: come together across all divides to perform, to create something new, to rediscover their humanity.
Join her and special guests for a revolutionary conversation about performance, development and the future of New York City.
