Station Hope 2020 Request for Proposals

Station Hope

Deadline for submissions is Monday, January 6.

Cleveland Public Theatre is planning the seventh annual STATION HOPE, a one night event of entertainment and art inspired by the history of St. John’s Church and the Underground Railroad, the repercussions of oppression, and contemporary struggles for social justice, on Saturday, May 2, 2020.

How Station Hope Works

Audiences explore St. John’s campus on the corner of W 26th St and Church Ave. With 30+ performances to choose from, attendees will encounter choirs, dance, theatre, intimate solo performance, and interactive art – all happening at the same time in multiple indoor and outdoor venues.

Station Hope performances are 10 – 15 minutes in length and presented multiple times throughout the evening. Art installations will range from large to small, depending on the individual needs and space availability.

Acerca de la obra…

Florida, 1929, dentro de una compañía de tabaco Cubano-americana, los cigarros se enrollan a mano y se emplean “lectores” para entretener a los trabajadores de la fábrica. La llegada de un nuevo lector es motivo de celebración, pero cuando este lee a Anna Karenina en voz alta, se convierte en un catalizador en la vida de sus ávidos oyentes, para quienes Tolstoi, los trópicos y el “sueño americano” demuestran una combinación voluble. Presentada en español con subtítulos en inglés. Estreno Regional.
