WNET’s previously announced All Arts, the new streaming platform and broadcast channel that offers access to all forms of creative expression from New York and around the world, includes a series entitled House Seats, featuring performances and behind-the-scenes content from some of the latest theatre productions.
House Seats launches February 3 at 8 PM with a screening of Theater of War Productions’ Antigone in Ferguson. Filmed last fall at Harlem Stage, the play was inspired by the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. A fusion of Sophocles’ classic tragedy with live music from a contemporary gospel choir and personal community discussion, the production features actors Samira Wiley, Chris Noth, and Tamara Tunie.
All Arts is a place for creators to learn from one another and for artists to reach audiences across the tri-state area. The network, including the TV channel and streaming apps on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, launched January 28. Select programming is also available on the Web, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
