COHESION'S FIRST EVER COMPETITION FUNDRAISER!!
Here's how it all works! Each member of Cohesion's Staff and Advisory Committee is selecting a stage production of some kind that they would like to do, and they are picking a role for themselves within that production. Whomever raises the most money for their idea, wins, and Cohesion will do it later this Summer as part of a celebration of awesomeness with food, drinks, and a big party afterwards! Each competitor has a goal of raising $500 for Cohesion, but they can raise oh so much more, and you get to put your money next to the idea you'd like to see most! All the details are over on our support page, and in the coming days we'll have info up there on each and every person's picks. When you donate, you just have to write in the notes section whose project you are donating for, and that's how we'll know. Vote with your dollars, and help Cohesion raise funds to end Season 4 and start Season 5 strong!
Thank you to everyone who came out to see La Llorona and The Orphan Sea! It was such a joy to share these shows with you, and we are so grateful for all the love and support you gave us while we mounted our first ever Repertory!
Season 4: E Pluribus Unum!
In season Four, Cohesion is doubling down on our mission and reflecting on our increasingly fragmented world by selecting pieces that deal broadly with the theme of E pluribus unum. Our goal as creators is to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate, therefore we selected a broad range of plays that ask us as a community to examine the poetics, politics, and possibilities embedded in the phrase: Out of many, one.
One of our goals has always been to stretch ourselves beyond what we have done before and Season Four is no exception. We are grateful and joyful for the vibrant and diverse community that allows us to keep reaching past our present successes to create work that investigates the path to a more cohesive and inclusive future for all.
Our Season Four lineup is bigger than ever with five main stage productions -- two in repertory with each other -- and a continuation of our successful Playwright’s Fellowship program, as well as an expansion of our educational work. Cohesion will once again continue expanding our collaborative mission by working in partnership with local theatre companies and our neighborhood communities to engage, encourage, and excite our audiences.
Cohesion Theatre Company seeks to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate. Society creates distinctions: between classical and new plays, between artistic disciplines, between companies, and between people of different race, class, and gender. CTC will examine these distinctions through the lens of live theatre with the goal of reaching a deeper understanding of what makes us individuals and what makes us all human. Cohesion actively seeks out other theatrical professionals, both individuals and organizations, and encourages cross promotion, co-production, and collaboration in every facet of the work we do.
