Premieres New Work By Female Playwrights at AS220 July 15th – 24th

Fringe PVD: This Gonna Be On the Test, Miss?

This Gonna Be on the Test, Miss?
A solo show written and performed by Ronna J Levy, directed by Tyler Spicer, and based on the true stories in a remedial English community college classroom

“‘This Gonna Be on the Test, Miss?” is a solo show that has been 20 years in the making.  20 years ago I detoured from acting into academia.

I became so frustrated trying to explain what I teach (Remedial English is for dummies, right?) and more particularly whom I teach (What do you mean your students don’t do the work or buythe book or sleep in class?), and bumping against our cultural narrative, characterized by a Hollywood portrayal of the clichéd ghetto high school student.  I figured the best way to explain myself would be through the powerful medium of storytelling, more specifically the solo show.

“‘This Gonna Be on the Test, Miss?” is based on the true stories from my 20 years teaching Remedial English in community college classrooms both in Los Angeles and New York City. Meet my students as I present classroom situations and characterizations of the academically underprepared and socio-economically disadvantaged students who are often misunderstood, represented by statistics, and portrayed as clichéd ghetto caricatures.

My students have always inspired me to tell their stories, their follies, their successes. But on a deeper level, the issues surrounding education and class and economics have compelled me to give a voice to this adult student population that is virtually voiceless, to make visible an academic environment that is virtually invisible.  I have to tell this story, not the Hollywood story of the clichéd ghetto students, not the story behind sensational headlines: NCLB, standard tests, and teacher evaluations, but the story of real students, real lives.

Now is the time to tell this story.  The story of higher education you don’t know; the story you need to know.

“Playing shows in basement bands may not offer adult security, just as writing songs about one of life’s worst losses doesn’t necessarily offer any resolutions, but survival is its own reward. And Psychopomp offers much more than that: at once cosmically huge and acutely personal, Zauner captures grief for the perversely intimate yet overwhelming pain it is. Long may she keep at this music thing.”

Jul 27 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Open Level Modern Dance with Katie McNamara & Olase Freeman// Wednesdays @ 6:30-8pm // $13 per class; $60 for 6 classes 

This open level class welcomes a wide spectrum of movers who want to explore fundamental physical connections and integrate those within expressive movement. The class begins on the floor in explorations of weight, momentum and range of motion in joints. Moving to a mid-level we will take time to condition the muscles within efficient patterns. In standing we investigate the dynamics of opposition in balance, gesture and weight shift to traverse the space across,  under and around.   All are welcome!
