Cloud Nine New Works Series
Coming in Autumn 2020
Dear friends, it is with heavy hearts that we are postponing our April workshops of Tanuja Jagernauth’s Fuck Cancer and Marisa Carr’s Punk Rock Mix Tape Play until autumn. It is our practice at Cloudgate to value people over product, and artist over art. As this pandemic has rippled around the globe, it has become clear that our values demand that we prioritize the health and wellbeing of our artists and our audiences. We believe in these plays and playwrights, and we eagerly await the day that we can share their urgent, searing work with you. We urge you to support the arts and artists in any way you can.
We believe in the civic function of theatre and in the incredible power of sharing space. It is central to our artistic identity. And in this time, we are exploring the ways those functions transcend the physical meeting place and triumph over fear and uncertainty. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues whose lives and livelihoods are jeopardized. The ghost light is now our beacon of hope, and we know it will guide us back to the theatre soon.
