Submissions are now open for the 2018-2019 Season centered around the theme, WAR + PEACE.
For our Fall 2018 – Spring 2019 Season, the Theater at the 14th Street Y is interested in Theater, Dance, Film, Music, and Festivals that revolve around the theme WAR + PEACE.
2017 - 2018 Season OTHER.
I entered the theater here at the 14th Street Y seven years ago as a LABA: Laboratory for Jewish Culture fellow, with no idea that I would become the Artistic Director of Arts + Culture. When I began in this role, the different artistic programs existed in their own bubbles and had no discourse. Now for the first time, two separate programs, LABA and the Theater/Dance Series, are being brought together around a central theme.
Through the collaboration with my Associate Artistic Director, David Stallings, we are presenting a season which merges these seemingly two separate worlds which co-existed here at the 14Y into one larger conversation -- a Talmudic kind of argument. One necessary theme, OTHER resonated in a world so divided, hostile and fragmented. In Hebrew we say DAVKA (exactly now or in spite of) which is the moment to find the most humane, ethical, and touching examples of bridging our differences. We are not afraid to present differences - join us in the dialogue.
