Partnerships and Consensus Organizing for Theater

Georgetown Partnership

Arena Stage’s partnership with Georgetown University, made possible by Andrew Ammerman, involves sharing of information and resources, special Georgetown University group nights at our productions, “Hoya Tickets,” and the engagement of Georgetown faculty from across the campus for dramaturgical expertise. This season, Georgetown Faculty our partnerships revolve around Arena’s productions of Nina Simone: Four Women, Sovereignty, and Two Trains Running.

Consensus Organizing for Theater

Consensus Organizing for Theater is an artistic methodology, developed by deputy artistic director Seema Sueko, where a theater builds stake in multiple pockets of community and those communities build stake back in the art by surfacing and organizing around mutual self-interests. The goals are artistic excellence and the diversification of the stakeholders of American theater. On selected productions, the Artistic Development department engages a diversity of communities in the dramaturgical investigation of the play and explores how our work on stage supports the mission and goals of partner organizations. For more information, or to connect your community to our artistic work, contact Seema at ssueko@arenastage.org.
