Language City

The Glade

August 16

10:00 pm

Half of all 7,000-plus human languages may disappear over the next century and—because many have never been recorded—when they’re gone, they’ll be gone forever. Ross Perlin, a linguist and co-director of the non-profit Endangered Language Alliance, is racing against time to map little-known languages across the most linguistically diverse city in history: contemporary New York. A Glade week and special evening in our Amph that weaves multi-lingual storytelling and performance in a tapestry as rich as our city.
