The artists we work with constantly invent new ways to disrupt the recognized systems of making work and our ways of looking at the world. With the Devised Theater Initiative (DTI) , we want to actively carve out space for that disruption – to nurture long-term relationships with theater-makers, instigate that energetic collision of diverse practices and perspectives, and look towards the future of the art form.
The Devised Theater Initiative is a year-round program that invites exceptionally talented theater-makers at all stages of their careers to make their artistic home at The Public. The initiative is committed to the exploration of new modes of creating and supporting work, and the creation of systems to support the full life of a project, from inception to production and beyond.
The initiative supports a range of programs, all geared towards a 360° view of supporting artists.
