Dance News: New Brooklyn Theatre And The Feath3r Theory Merge To Form A Combined Company
New Brooklyn Theatre, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2012 to democratize the American theatre, has announced Raja Feather Kelly as its new Artistic Director and appointing Rachel Pritzlaff as Executive Director. Jeff Strabone, Chairman of the Board of New Brooklyn Theatre and co-founder of the organization, will continue to chair the board.
"Raja Feather Kelly is one of the most innovative artists working at the nexus of dance, theatre, and media in the U.S. today. New Brooklyn Theatre is proud to join forces with Raja and the feath3r theory," says Chairman of the Board Jeff Strabone.
New Brooklyn Theatre aims to democratize the American theatre, to broaden the space for unheard voices and repressed histories, to bring into the theatre those sometimes left out, and to use theatre to provoke much-needed public conversations. The company is committed to addressing pressing social issues, often in site-specific spaces that bring theatre directly to the communities it serves.
This video, edited by Laura Snow, is a reel of selected works by the feath3r theory over the past seven years. It places the works in context and in conversation with each other.
