JERSEY CITY THEATER CENTER PRESENTS “IDENTITY”

IDENTITY

Audiences at Merseles Studios in Jersey City will experience an eclectic, thought-provoking selection of theater, dance and readings as Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) continues its exploration of Identity, which closes May 13th.

Identity – the new series by JCTC – looks at the many ways individuals define themselves and each other – and how our definitions of self are affected by the world we live in, and in turn, influences both our culture and our community. Through theater, performances, readings, dance and a visual arts exhibition – and Talk-Back sessions featured as part of most events – JCTC takes audiences on a multi-faceted journey of inquiry about the meaning of self and its relationship to society. Identity – which was funded in part by a grant from the Hudson County Department of Cultural Affairs.

WHEN: February 26 through May 13
WHERE:
Merseles Studios, 339 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07302.
