Performance 2/20 @ 7 &9pm:

Haunted Files

Produced by American Slavery Project & The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 @ 7PM & 9PM

The Sheen Center in collaboration with The American Slavery Project presents Haunted Files, an immersive evening of theatre, recreating through audience interaction, performance, and talkback the history of scientific racism and eugenics in America. Eugenics is the Progressive Era movement of white Protestant “experts” that sought to eliminate a range of marginalized peoples and elevate Northern Europeans as the norm. The movement pushed these goals through immigration restriction, sterilization, institutionalization, and controlled breeding. It’s legacies continue to have a lasting impact on our country today, even with its dark ties to the atrocities of the Nazi regime.

This evening will draw on the “human trait” files of America’s Eugenics Records Office, specifically the eugenics lecture notes, handed-down pedigree charts, and endless “human trait” files, along with the actual notes of a white eugenics field researcher and an African-Chinese American patient who was deemed automatically “unfit,”institutionalized, and eventually sterilized.

The Eugenics Records Office was the Long Island epicenter of the American eugenics movement. In spring 2015, the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU creatively reimagined the Eugenics Records Office in the exhibit “Haunted Files: The Eugenics Record Office.” American Slavery Project (ASP) was invited to examine the records and created a piece as part of the exhibit programing. ASP writers have imagined the lives of the field worker and the patient and woven the stories of these two women together in a duologue, shedding light on the history of scientific racism in America.

Featuring a post show panel with Adam Cohen, author of Imbeciles: The Supreme Court, American Eugenics, and the Sterilization of Carrie Buck; Noa Fuller and Jack Tchen, co-curators of the original “Haunted Files” exhibition; and Judy Tate, co-founder of The American Slavery Project.

The A/P/A Institute’s “Haunted Files” online can be found here.

The theatrical event will be in the Loreto Theater at 7PM & 9PM.

The Haunted Files Exhibition will be in Studio A&B from 9AM-5PM.

Tickets: $25

*Student rush tickets will be available an hour before any performance for $20 with a valid current student ID

Interactive Theatre /Diversity Training with DeValk Associates

For the past few years I have been performing with a wonderful company called DeValk Associates.  We perform short dramatizations of workplace situations as catalysts to in depth conversations about micro inequities, diversity awareness and respectful, productive workplace communication.

Steve DeValk, who runs the company, interviews the clients extensively in order to then write unique scripts based on the issues the client needs addressed. Then we rehearse with him and on the day of the program our performances enhance his moderation and presentation.  It’s really been exciting to do this work and I’m so happy to be a part of it all.

Here is a Fortune.com article about one of our performances for the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative last November:

“Princess Posey and the Next-Door Dog” by Stephanie Greene

Princess Posey and the Next-Door Dog

July 2013…

July 2013… Princess Posey and the Next-Door Dog by Stephanie Greene for Recorded Books, LLC.

Although no one else knows, Posey has been afraid of dogs ever since she was knocked down by a big dog when she was tiny. Whenever Posey feels challenged, she dresses in her
princess outfit featuring a pink tutu. When she hears loud barks coming from the new neighbor’s yard and decides to meet the dog, she dresses appropriately to help overcome her fear. Posey successfully rises to the occasion – with a little support from her clothing.

This early chapter book is practically perfect. The text is understanding of a child’s viewpoint without being patronizing. The print is large with generous white space between the lines and around the pages. The soft pencil illustrations are humorous. This is just one of a fine series of gentle adventures.

‘The Lemonade Crime’ Review

"By matching the style of the prose with narration that is fluid and spare, Stina Nielsen allows the heart of the story to shine. With her subtle vocal differentiation, Evan and Jessie feel like real characters rather than characterizations. There isn't a false step in the story, as written or narrated."

-AudioFile magazine review of 'The Lemonade Crime' by Jaqueline Davies

‘Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging’ Review

"Stina Nielsen is a perfect choice for this narration. She gets 14-year-old Georgia just right, capturing her wry humor and moving easily between the panic, misery, and exultation that make up a teenager's day. Nielsen does a stellar narration using a bubbly cadence that has you laughing and cringing throughout."
