    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: http://www.culturebot.org/2013/02/15952/the-politics-of-cultural-production-in-theater-or-devise-this-part-iii/ 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. Jess Barbagallo (Co-Founder, Half Straddle) Hannah Bos (Co-Artistic Director of The Debate Society) Oliver Butler (Co-Artistic Director of The Debate Society) Lisa Kron (Playwright/Performer, Co-Founder The Five Lesbian Brothers) Avia Moore (Director/Dramaturg/Creative Producer) Dan Rothenberg (Founding member and co-artistic director of the Pig Iron Theatre Company) Tina Satter (Artistic Director, Half Straddle) Clyde Valentín (producer and executive director of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival (HHTF) Paul Zimet (Artistic Director, Talking Band)
