New York City
Endurance Theatre presents Performing Tribute 9/11: Ordinary People, Remarkable Stories in New York and New Jersey to commemorate the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001.
The show brings together the unique and inspiring stories of individuals who were directly impacted by the events of 9/11– survivors of the North and South Towers; family members who lost loved ones; an evacuated area resident; a retired FDNY firefighter who responded to the site, a New Jersey resident who volunteered in the aftermath with the Salvation Army, and volunteers who helped in the rescue and recovery. The individual experiences are told first-hand and woven together in a moving theatrical event.
The actual people who experienced 9/11 perform the piece, telling their stories via a reader’s theatre style in front of moving images from the day.
At each presentation of Performing Tribute a piece from the cladding of the towers will be on display. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey distributed pieces of the World Trade Center rubble to organizations and cities around the world for memorials. Endurance Theatre received a small piece in August of 2010.
Conceived and Directed by DONNA KAZ
