Raw Thought (2022)

Raw Thought was being developed in residency with students at Hunter College in New York during the Spring 2020 semester and has been postponed due to the coronavirus.
The trailer above features cast members from that performance, Alex Aguirre, Carlos Garcia, Erin Jeffries, Cloyce Martin, Annabella Pritchard, Sophia Radix, Mayurakshi Sen and Jason Wang.

Raw Thought (previously entitled Building A Real Boy) is a multimedia theatrical telling of the life, death, and work of computer activist Aaron Swartz who died tragically at the age of 26 while facing forty years in prison for downloading academic journals to share with the public. This show is devised from Aaron Swartz’s writing, blog and journal entries, interviews with colleagues and friends.

Raw Thought has been created collaboratively by a team of performers, directors, writers, and designers at Co-Op Theatre East. We look forward to presenting Raw Thought in 2022.
