Ohio Artists Gathering: Summer Creative & Performing Arts Collaborative

A weeklong festival August 27th-31st, bringing together Ohio and New York theatre artists and creatives - playwrights, producers, directors, choreographers, and actors. This week-long gathering will include open-to-public rehearsals, inviting the greater Columbus and Ohio theatre communities into the process of creating new works for the stage, with new work presentations and talkbacks on the final day. Ohio artists and theatre lovers will experience first-hand the creative collaboration of native Columbus artists working at home, in New York, and beyond. Attendance can be fluid throughout the week to include artists, students and practitioners. Audience members will be invited to experience the culminating presentations and talkbacks.
