Wild Culture is a co-production program where wild project partners with a cross-section of independent, downtown performance artists to help both professional and emerging theater performers nurture, broaden and advance projects that are in various stages of development. Wild Culture co-productions give artists subsidized access to wild project's 89-seat theater, box-office split, technical staff, and community outreach to sustain the innovative creativity of downtown performance and unburden independent artists from prohibitive production costs. Projects that wish to submit to Wild Culture should align with wild project's mission to enrich and educate the community, explore issues relating to female, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artist communities and demonstrate a clear performance aesthetic. Wild Culture adapts each partnership to the specific needs and artistic vision of the project. Wild Culture is an ongoing program throughout the year.
