“Under the Radar Festival” director Mark Russell gives a preview of the 2017 festival, along with Nikki Appino and Saori Tsukada, the creators of "Club Diamond," a modern take on the immigration tale that uses a silent American film and weaves storytelling, dance and music together to tell the story, developed in collaboration with Tim Fain. This year’s festival expands to venues throughout New York City, in addition to The Public Theater’s downtown home at Astor Place.
"Club Diamond" runs from January 5 through 9 at The Public Theater: Martinson Hall (425 Lafayette Street). The "Under the Radar" festival runs from January 4 through the 15. For complete festival details, visit their website.
