Directed and choreographed by University Settlement Artist-in-Residence, Jesca Prudencio
Created with People of Interest Theater Company.

Walking down the street, sitting on the train, waiting in line, etc. – public space is a platform for sexual harassment. International director, choreographer, and documentary theater maker Jesca Prudencio explores the layered experience of the victim around the moment of attack.

Developed through a series of workshops and interviews, NOHING is a documentary dance theater work that shares the unsettling experiences of women from the University Settlement community in New York City. Jesca and her company, People of Interest, perform the victims' physical struggles to simultaneously protect, fight, and scream silently – like the strong, yet still, Noh spirits. NOHING merges testimony, multimedia, and traditional Japanese Noh dance to explore the mask that women wear to survive harassment.
