Waiting for Godot in New Orleans

Sublime cultural moments happen when the time, place and art meet in perfect harmony.

Artist Paul Chan worked with Creative Time to bring the Classical Theatre of Harlem to stage Beckett’s Waiting for Godot in the ninth ward of New Orleans.

The ninth ward was the heaviest hit in the devastating 2005 Hurricane Katrina and people are still desperately waiting for help to get back to their homes.

Dan Cameron vividly describes the experience of the event:
