On Oct. 31, Ithaca College senior Aaliyah Warrington’s play “Gather Ye Children” premiered virtually.
Ithaca College has announced its plan to address two of Ithaca College Theatre Arts Black, Indigenous and People of Color (ICTA BIPOC)’s demands.
Ithaca College is known for its respected Department of Theatre Arts, and the students who participate in its shows are known to be extremely dedicated to their craft.
“As a playwright, I aim to have anti-racist and feminist conversations in the theater that fuel collective responsibility and enthusiasm,” Lenelle Moϊse ’02 said.
The cast and creative team of the play “Ironbound,” written Martyna Majok, involve three Ithaca College alumni, two professors and a current student.
Every character besides the narrator is played by a member of the audience. Some stay in their seats … while others are brought onto the stage.
Catherine Weidner, professor and chair of the Department of Theatre Arts, said that overall, ALANA students represent 26 percent of the Department of Theatre Arts.
