The theater is a living organism. It has a beating heart that can energize whole communities. A brain that can train and thrill both spectators and makers. The stage has a soul that can soothe the players upon it, and tickle all their senses.
As American stage director Margo Jones put it, “Everything in life is theater“. And the other way around. Because every aspect of the theater can be brought to bear on life and its challenges. That is the thinking behind Brasart: to find different ways to wield the power of the theater.
