The UTR Professional Symposium – one of the core activities of the Under the Radar Festival – will focus on the future of producing and presenting independent theater as we transition fitfully to a post-Covid world. The many challenges facing performance programs now are amplified in the section of the field made of independent companies, often emerging artists, or those not fitting into a regular category.
Thursday, January 12th
The Symposium will start with a family-style dinner at the Library. Attendees will then move to the Anspacher theater for SEVEN METHODS OF KILLING KYLIE JENNER.
Friday, January 13th
In the morning the symposium will reconvene at Joe’s Pub for a light breakfast, keynote presentations, and coming attractions. After a boxed lunch, the group will see OUR COUNTRY, a short panel and dialogue with artists on activism during war – actual and cultural. The symposium ends with YOUR SEXTS ARE SHIT; OLDER BETTER LETTERS and a wrap-up toast.
The symposium is reserved for professionals in the field of presenting and producing. Capacity is very limited. Reservations will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis. The cost for participation this year is $225 to cover costs. Symposium members are offered a discount at UTR Festival events.
