All Art is Political

Empathy, Identity and Intention in the Theater

How are beliefs formed and how are they changed? Through volatile political climates and waves of social revolution, theater artists have an opportunity – perhaps even a responsibility – to confront and interpret shifting cultural paradigms.

This year’s Lab will challenge directors to articulate the goals of their work as it relates to the psychology of change, persuasion, and bias. We’ll explore topics such as social justice theater, breaking out of the echo chamber, inclusion and diversity both onstage and off, and the roles of empathy and understanding in the creation of art.

To apply for the Lab
