Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide Thursday February 16th, 7:30 PM Joe's Pub 425 Lafayette Street, New York NY Advance tickets, reserved seating. $15 Award-winning playwright and actress Judith Sloan collides with revolutionary rapper Immortal Technique. Part documentary, part music, part poetic autobiography, Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide looks back on Judith’s years of teaching in prisons, immigration high schools, and universities. In this sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always truth-seeking performance, Sloan breaks down assumptions that divide teacher and student, student and student, one sub-culture from another, and residents of a polyglot city who live in close proximity but come from conflicting worlds. Through poetry, vivid character portrayals and music, she brings their tales to life along with her own stories revealing the ripple effects of the Holocaust on her family. In addition to her work as an educator, Judith Sloan is an award-winning character actress, oral historian, and radio producer. Fusing the art of theatre and radio, Yo Miss is an eye- and ear-witness account of one artist navigating a maze of miscommunications, memory, and cross-generational dialogues as she finds resilience in the face of tragedy. A play with music Conceived and written by Judith Sloan Directed by Michael Dinwiddie Music direction Frank London Performed by Judith Sloan with Adam Hill and MiWi LaLupa Live Sound Engineer Luke Santy Sound direction and design Judith Sloan Editor at large Warren Lehrer Yo Miss is a project of EarSay, produced by Judith Sloan developed with support from Viper Records and Morgan Jenness from Abrams Agency. A portion of the proceeds from the Yo Miss! theatre project go to support EarSay’s Youth Education project for immigrant and refugee teenagers. “As Sloan helps the students compose their performance, she is also coming full circle with a new work of her own. “Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide,” which she performs with musical collaborators, re-enacts and riffs on her experiences teaching teenagers from myriad worlds: refugee camps, struggling neighborhoods, prisons. It is a performance about performances, a story containing many stories. And suddenly, “Yo Miss!” has another mission: To raise money to keep the story going!
