Event Details

Rep Stage-Off Stage

Rep Stage-Off Stage presents a special panel discussion on anti-racism in the theatre industry. As theatres across the country respond to a call to action to dive deep into the work of anti-racism within their organizations and create an industry that truly in more inclusive and equitable, Rep Stage and affiliate artists discuss an anti-racist theatre ethos which actively reduces harm, prevents harm, and repairs relationships while acknowledging the past and re-imagining the future.
