Dear droogs, I'm Alexander Sharp, and I am one of the members of the team that will be bringing this story to life, this academic year. The team is made up of students within the Juilliard community, who are keen to collaborate with their fellow students, from different divisions.
Collaboration is the goal. This project will create a creative space in which we will blur the lines between the Dance, Drama, Music and Vocal Arts division students crafts, in order to most effectively tell this powerful story, set in the not so distant future...

Fortunately, being an officially approved student initiated project, Juilliard is providing us a performance space in which to create our show. This removes some of the major costs that a new theatrical production usually faces.

That said, there are other things for which we must raise money. Such as: a simplistic set, some basic lighting, costumes, and props.

Why Sir Anthony Burgess' play, A Clockwork Orange? Why now?

This complex, dark and yet hilarious play explores subjects that we as a team feel strongly about and that we all have different personal connections with.

A Clockwork Orange dances with society's relationship to violence, youth, sexuality, gender, government, and the justice system. It explores a person's ability to change, the potential for rehabilitation, and the importance of choice, and free will...

Set in a city, in the future, It makes us ask, 'where are we headed?'

'What's it going to be then, eh?'

I hope you will join us on March 23rd 2014, at The Juilliard School, and dive in with us. Dive into this mad world: The not so distant future.

Thank you so much for your support!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,
from The Clockwork Team

What is A Clockwork Orange?

'--- The attempt to impose upon man, a creature of growth and capable of sweetness, to ooze juicily at the last round the bearded lips of God, to attempt to impose, I say, laws and conditions appropriate to a mechanical creation, against this I raise my sword-pen---'
"Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not. "
