In the age of social distancing and self-isolation, NJPAC wants to bring the performing arts right into New Jerseyans’ homes.
If you’re growing bored with your usual TV binges, quarantine may be a good opportunity to explore the high culture. The New Jersey Performing Arts Center will be posting both old and new performances to their website and social media channels every day.
The series, NJPAC in Your Living Room, hopes to introduce a new spark to home entertainment during social distancing.
“In this unprecedented time of uncertainty, we need the joy and the connection the performing arts can bring us more than we ever have before,” said David Rodriguez, Executive Producer at NJPAC.
In addition to recordings of old concerts, plays, and recitals, NJPAC is continuing to produce new content. They’ll regularly upload new performances, as well as interviews with favorite artists for those interested in the world backstage.
Some performances will be from commissioned artists, as well as NJPAC’s Arts Education students and Community Engagement partners.
Looking for something specific? NJPAC will also gladly take suggestions for artists and performances from their fans.
“We’ll keep bringing you these virtual concerts until we can welcome you back to our stages in person,” said Rodriguez. “Remember: this is just intermission. We’ll see you again soon.”
