New York Theatre Workshop recently launched a digital archive, giving NYTW Members and Repeat Defenders a free all-access pass to stream many of the 2020/21 Artistic Instigator season's theatrical experiences on-demand. From FEBRUARY 15-28, 2021, NYTW Members & Donors will be able to stream NYTW's 2017 production of The Object Lesson, by NYTW Usual Suspect Geoff Sobelle, directed by David Neumann and featuring scenic installation design by Steven Dufala.
The archive launched with a special sneak peek work-in-process sharing of The Talking Circles, written and performed by Martha Redbone & Aaron Whitby. Other projects that are available to stream via the archive include What the Hell is a Republic, Anyway?; The Seagull on The Sims 4; Pinching Pennies with Penny Marshall; The Cooking Project; and The Wright Stuff. The NYTW Digital Archive can be viewed at www.nytw.org/streams. NYTW Memberships begin at $20/month and are available at NYTW.org or 212-460-5475.
While the Artistic Instigators are supported in their exploration of form and content, audiences will be invited to experience the evolution of the work through work-in-process sharings and behind-the-scenes conversations with artists. NYTW is asking audiences to take a leap. What it promises in return is a front-row seat to the unfolding of this experiment-and that the definition of a "front-row seat" will shift throughout the year. Some events will be exclusively virtual experiences while others MAY take place in person-when it is possible to do so with appropriate safety measures.
For tickets and more information about these projects and the Artistic Instigators, please visit www.nytw.org.
Alongside its artistic and community engagement programming, NYTW is engaged in the essential, sustained commitment of becoming an anti-racist organization in support and affirmation of Black people, Indigenous people and People of Color in their community. In JUNE, NYTW published its Core Values statement and initial action and accountability steps. In an effort to provide greater transparency, NYTW shared an OCTOBER update with next steps at nytw.org/accountability. NYTW will continue to publish updates in the coming months about further commitments and the progress updates.
