American Theater Is Imploding Before Our Eyes: What Lies Ahead for the Performing Arts
American Theater Is Imploding Before Our Eyes: What Lies Ahead for the Performing Arts

This summer, Isaac Butler published an essay in The New York Times entitled “American Theater Is Imploding Before Our Eyes.” The publication sparked a lot of conversations among everyone in and near the performing arts. While there was general agreement with that diagnosis, there was far less consensus about the underlying cause and even less agreement about the best course of treatment. Please join Isaac, along with Nataki Garret (One Nation / One Project and Stephanie Ybarra (Mellon Foundation), for a wide-ranging, online conversation about the state of our field, how we got here, and where we might go next. The conversation will be moderated by Jamie Bennett (Lord Cultural Resources).

This is a recording of the first session of the Creative Communities Commons (CCC) series at the School of Cities.

Gail Lord has developed a concept for an “Aware-house,” not a ware house, but an Aware-house as a place to put memorials and other works that have been removed from public squares. It is neither shrine nor graveyard, but a site of truth, reconciliation, and collective recovery where activists, artists, curators, historians, political scientists, psychologists, sociologists, and the public can come together.
