(Durham, N.C.) - Students in a Durham Technical Community College Oral Interpretation course will perform “What Was Found,” a work based on an essay from the "Imagining New Orleans Oral History Project."
The performance focuses on the struggles of post-Katrina New Orleans, with its destruction, desolation, and bureaucratic challenges. But despite the despair, hope shines through in the performance. Durham Tech instructor Tracy Francis, who directs the production, also includes some of his students’ original poetry and music. Performances are scheduled for 2 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2 and Thursday, Dec. 4 in the Educational Resources Center at the Main Campus, 1637 Lawson Street.
The production is free and open to the public. Take the Durham Freeway to Exit 10 at Briggs Avenue. Turn right onto Lawson Street, then right into the Durham Tech parking lot.
