Kennedy Center ACTF Awards for Fall Theater Shows at Lehman
A note from David Sullivan, director of the Theatre Program at Lehman:
I am delighted to share with you that our Theater Program has earned two Merit Awards in Acting Performance from the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KC/ACTF) Region 1 for the fall productions of MARISOL and NOISES OFF.
The Acting Company of MARISOL earned an award for “Meritorious Achievement in Cohesive Ensemble” Performance and junior theater major Emmanuel Delgado from the cast of NOISES OFF earned an award for “Extraordinary Characterization & Performance Through Physical Comedy.”
These are awards recommended by the respondents from the KC/ACTF program, and I am proud of our students and program for the achievement.
Here is some information on the Kennedy Center ACTF program that presents the awards:
Started in 1969 by Roger L. Stevens, the Kennedy Center’s founding chairman, the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) is a national theater program involving 18,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide which has served as a catalyst in improving the quality of college theater in the United States. The KCACTF has grown into a network of more than 600 academic institutions throughout the country, where theater departments and student artists showcase their work and receive outside assessment by KCACTF respondents.

ANABELLA’S BOOK: UNVEILING MOTION AND EMOTION
Exploring the importance of dance, community, choreography and dance pedagogy, Argentinean Choreographer Anabella Lenzu celebrates 20th years of teaching dance in a book of her writings in Spanish and English. Opening her own dance school at 18, Lenzu recounts her experiences in South America, Europe, and the US along with publishing an arts magazine and creating repertory for her dance company. Lenzu’s eloquent prose reveals reflexions of a life devoted to dance performance and education. Photography by Todd Carroll fully documents the performances and glimpses into the creative process behind the scenes. This book is an inspiration to dancers and teachers alike, and the first of its kind as a bilingual text on dance pedagogy. Set for international release in March 2013.
