SEEKING JUSTICE: An Original Show by the CAT Youth Theatre
What is our relationship to justice? Who does justice serve? When and how should we fight for justice?
In a time where celebrity court cases and high-profile crimes are all over the news and protests over injustices have erupted in New York and around the globe, questions of what is just, and how justice is even defined are more relevant than ever. The CUNY Creative Arts Team's CAT Youth Theatre will explore many facets of justice in its upcoming original production of SEEKING JUSTICE, created by the members of the CAT Youth Theatre.
"SEEKING JUSTICE developed from the young people's observations on how they see the Justice System and then reflecting on what justice really is - and should be," says CAT Youth Theatre founder and program director, Helen White. "Since November, the 31 members who are working on this production have been researching different kinds of justice - from the legal system to street justice, from vengeance to forgiveness, from families to schools - to generate original theatre that grapples with the questions of what IS justice, and who decides what is just."
The results of this highly provocative process will be woven into a completely original new production.
