Description

Brecht predicted, “Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.” In consideration of a decade of PRELUDE, we bring together former and present PRELUDE curators for a lively discussion (led by artist David Levine) about the way things could become.These curators, who also live double and even triple lives as scholars, artists, producers, and administrators, will harness the insights they have gathered over the past decade to debate their visions of contemporary New York theatre and performance in the decade to come.

Presented in collaboration with Cultural Capital: The Future of New York’s Creative Economy, a public program of the CUNY Graduate Center, Fall 2013.

Moderator: David Levine

Participants: Sarah Benson, Claire Bishop, Caleb Hammons, Frank Hentschker, Andy Horwitz, Rob Marcato, Morgan von Prelle Pecelli, Geoffrey Scott, and Helen Shaw
