QUARANSTREAM THEATRE FESTIVAL Launches This Week With Artists From Around The World

QUARANSTREAM THEATRE FESTIVAL Launches This Week With Artists From Around The World

The QuaranStream Theatre Festival is a week-long virtual festival of short plays and performances created specifically for live-streaming. Each show is created, directed and performed by theatre artists around the world; all from the safety of their homes! During the festival, over 70 artists will take the virtual stage to showcase their creative quarantine innovations! From love stories and revolutions, to puppets and dance - all the way to a folk opera, there is bound to be something for everyone!

The festival is produced by a collection of Chicago theatre artists seeking to reimagine the way theatre is created, and to provide opportunity and support for artists put out of work by the unprecedented COVID-19 shutdowns and layoffs.

Stream the festival each night at the QuaranStream Facebook Page from April 12-18th. Recordings of all performances will be available on Facebook until April 20th. A full festival lineup and schedule can be found on all QuaranStream social media pages.

The QuaranStream Theatre Festival is free for all to stream and enjoy. In place of selling tickets, the producers are raising funds through a GoFundMe to compensate all artists who participate. Consider donating to the fundraiser as a direct way to contribute to the financial well being of artists impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. All funds raised will be equally distributed among participating artists.
