IRT, New York Deaf Theatre and Our Voices


January 19 2017

On January 19, 2017 at 5:30PM in each time zone across the country, members of the theater community-from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters-will come together to launch The Ghostlight Project.

Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theater, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone-regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

IRT Theater, New York Deaf Theatre, and Our Voices will come together with the common interests of advocating inclusion and diversity. We will gather inside IRT Theater (154 Christopher Street, Third Floor-3B) from 4:30-5:30pm with a 15 minute ceremony at 5:30pm sharp.

No RSVP necessary. Just bring a light to shine-the flashlight on your mobile phone is perfect!

ASL interpreters will be provided

IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village,  IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, Office of Council Member Corey Johnson and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.
