BROKEN HEART LAND by Vicki Lynn Mooney
We are currently raising funds for our second full production, the world premiere of BROKEN HEART LAND by Cherokee playwright, Vicki Lynn Mooney.
BROKEN HEART LAND is scheduled to take place in the fall of 2014, and will be produced on the Lenape island of Manhattan, which also happens to be the theater capital of the world, New York City.
BROKEN HEART LAND is a coming-of-age story about a mixed-blood teenage girl, who comes to learn about her potential and self-worth through the discovery and celebration of her Cherokee roots. By realizing who she is and where she comes from, she no longer has to be a pawn in someone else's agenda. A story like this is personal to so many Natives of all tribes who struggle with identity due to historical and political reasons, and it serves as an inspiration to people of all ethnicities who want to find greater meaning of who they are and how they can use that to have a stronger impact on society.
"Explore What it Means to be American..."
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.
It is the mission of Eagle Project to explore the American identity through performing arts and our Native American heritage.
