What This Stillness Brought Us
In 2020, Incoming Theater Division's scheduled performance was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What This Stillness Brought Us takes the shape of one-to-one recorded interview conversations between participants about their lives post COVID-19 and amid the social unrest following George Floyd’s killing. nycplayers.org/itd
