The NOLA Project & Contemporary Arts Center present
Catch the Wall
a new play workshop by Gabrielle Reisman
When a champion bounce emcee—Benefit—dies unexpectedly, 6th graders Cleo and Justice set out to make a dance video so that their mentor’s memory can live on. But when Benefit’s ghost begins haunting the halls of their charter school, the girls must push back against their teacher’s expectations and the dangers of their neighborhood, and find a story they can claim as their own. Catch the Wall, by the same writer that brought The NOLA Project ’Taste’ is a multi-media bounce play, fueled by the music and culture of New Orleans.
Come and check out a workshop performance of this exciting new play on June 21 and 22 at the CAC Theater. Admission is free and the show starts at 7:30pm each night. Doors will open at 7:15. This is a great opportunity to catch a glimpse at a play in progress! We plan to use this workshop as a tool to see what works, what doesn’t, and what you, the audience, want to see more of. We plan to mount a full-scale production in late February of 2013!
