On Sunday January 20, 2013, Culturebot hosted a Long Table on The Politics of Cultural Production In Theater as part of The Under The Radar Festival. It was inspired in part by this essay:

The past few years have seen an increased level of discussion about “devised” theater in traditional play circles. Is all this talk merely a trend or a real shift in the American Theater landscape? Words like devised, ensemble and collaborative are used interchangeably to describe a wide variety of practices and aesthetics – but what are we really talking about, where did these practices come from and how does practice inform content? Join a group of artists, writers and scholars for a discussion of the past, present and future of non-traditional theater making.
