re:ROUTES - 2018 NET National Gathering & Symposium

NET's national community gathered in the Sonoran Desert for reflection, conversations, sunsets, workshops, local community highlights, leg-dangling poolside hangouts, panels, performances, networking, and Tucson’s renowned All Souls Procession Weekend (a city-wide series of grassroots, art-infused ceremonies, celebrations, and events culminating in a community ritual Procession & Finale performance, produced by NET member Flam Chen/Many Mouths One Stomach)!

This two-city event in Tempe & Tucson, re:ROUTES explored expansive and emerging definitions, notions, and manifestations of ensemble practice and collaborative creation through the themes/priorities of:

  • Artistic Disciplines, Forms & Aesthetics
  • Decolonizing Ensemble Theater: Power, Systems, Culture & Traditions
  • Civic Applications; Community, Ritual & Collective Resistance
  • Place: Local, Regional & Indigenous Work, Artists & Ideas
  • Cultural Pluralism, Equity, Justice & Anti-Oppression.

NET's National Gathering & Symposium events brought together performing artists, co-creators, practitioners, producers, scholars, educators, teaching artists, students, cultural workers, organizers, activists, policy makers, funders, and community partners.
