Tisch New Theatre will perform ONWARD, a benefit concert featuring 11 NYU students, on Sunday. Funds will go to Good Chance Theatre, an organization that builds temporary theaters to facilitate immigrant and local community integration.
“[Good Chance] understand[s] that expression in theatre is the most collaborative and unifying way to heal,” said cast member and Steinhardt student Kuhoo Verma.
The organization built their first theater in a refugee camp in Calais in 2015, followed by London and Paris.
ONWARD is entirely produced and performed by NYU students. It is directed by Casey Whyland, Gallatin senior and performer in Broadway’s Billy Elliot.
Verma says that the concert is a “celebration of our responsibility as human beings. We can and should and will take care of each other.”
ONWARD will be performed on April 15 at 7 p.m. in the Eisner & Lubin Auditorium in Kimmel.
