Organization: Civilians: Extended Play
“This is Reading: Photo & Video Essay”
The Civilians talks about their role in This is Reading by expanding the scope of what This is Reading could encompass. The Civilians added digital offerings of the This is Reading initiative by releasing published transcriptions of Project& Global Advisory Board Member and Creative Collaborator Lynn Nottage and her associate Ed Wasserman conducting interviews with the Citizens of Reading.
“It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.”- James Carter, The Civilians
The Civilians published gorgeous photos and videos of the performances and elements of the transmedia initiative This is Reading.
This Is Reading was created by an award-winning team of artists, including Lynn Nottage; filmmaker Tony Gerber; director Kate Whoriskey; projection designer Jeff Sugg; set designer Christine Jones; and producers Jane M. Saks (Project& President and Artistic Director), Blake Ashman-Kipervaser and Allison Bressi.
