Community Gathering on Zoom - register with the bright red reservation box to receive the Zoom link. These gatherings are a service for the theater community and are offered free for TRU members; we ask that non-members help keep us running by making a donation or joining as a member.
In the room: Meredith Lucio, producing director of The Assembly Theater; Rob Neill, co-artistic & founding ensemble member of New York Neo-Futurists; Stephen Sunderlin, producing artistic director of the Vital Theater Company. The Assembly is a collective of multi-disciplinary performance artists who create "devised theater"; NY Neo-Futurists is a community of artists that fuses elements of poetry, game and performance art to create ever-changing theater and other artistic experiments; Vital Theatre is a community of artists dedicated to inspiring young audiences. Community and collaboration are key to all three companies. Our guests will share stories about their company's founding: Has their mission, their infrastructure and their audience evolved over the years? How did they grow and maintain their companies? To what do they attribute their longevity? How did they adapt to the restraints of shutdown, what lessons were learned and what are their plans going forward?
