Eagle Project is a professional performing arts company, fiscally sponsored by New York Live Arts, that behaves as an artistic laboratory by utilizing theater, music, dance, spoken word, and film to dissect the American identity, while using the Native American experience, both past and present, as the primary means for which to conduct its exploration. This mission is carried out through the development and staging of the works of Native American playwrights, educational outreach on Native American culture, and the production of the works of other American voices that are not frequently heard.
(NYC) Rebel Theater and The Eagle Project, in association with The Nuyorican Poets Cafe, will be casting for their upcoming production of Trail of Tears, a new play written by Thomas J. Soto and directed and choreographed by award-winning activist, Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj.
