Continuing the SF & Indonesia Connection
The rumors are true. The next draft of our play Rights of Passage will be read at NCTC on April 3, 2011 at 2pm.
In other breaking news...We just received word from the US Office of Homeland Security that NCTC will indeed be permitted to host 4 performances of Gender Mystic next month featuring our friend and highly regarded international artist Didik Nini Thowok. Didik uses masks and dance forms from different Asian traditions to embody different characters, moods and contemporary ideas with comic strength. Didik is one of the few remaining artists who explores transgender culture and its cultural connection with mystical practices in Indonesia.
Gender Mystic is being presented in association with the SF Asian Art Museum who will also be hosting a lecture demonstration event during his visit. Didik’s limited engagement in San Francisco will benefit Rights of Passage which will have its world premiere in August of 2012.
Please visit our website at www.nctcsf.org to join us for the April 3, 2011 Rights of Passage staged reading, book your tickets for Gender Mystic April 21-24, 2011 or to visit us at the Asian Art Museum on April 23, 2011.
It’s a hive of activity next month!
