Summary
Eight performing artists living in New York City discuss their work in this intimate and illuminating program. The eight - actors, musicians, a choreographer, and a poet - give voice to the rich transformative process of creativity as they explain how they started, what motivates them, and why they chose to work in what is probably the most artistically competitive city in the world. Although diverse in cultural background, age, and medium of expression, the eight share a dedication to their craft and to the city that inspires them. Clips of street and stage performances open each interview segment, capturing the vitality and color of the NYC art scene.
