I am thrilled to announce Seesaw Theatre’s theme for the 2019-2020 season: Exploration! As our executive board was discussing our hopes for the upcoming year, the word exploration permeated many discussions. We are excited about infusing a sense of exploration into all facets of our work.
I love the concept of exploration for many reasons. Exploration is essential for creation. In order for something to come into existence, someone must be willing to dive headfirst into the unknown and explore. Exploration is necessary for innovation. It is easy to become satisfied once you have established something that works. But with a fiery sense of exploration and an insatiable curiosity, innovation will continue to improve upon the original.
For these reasons, and many more, I am so excited to center our season programming around exploration. Our shows and workshops will give audience members the agency to become explorers -- investigating and engaging with unique adventures. As an organization, we will examine our processes in order to continue exploring how we can innovate and improve our practices.
We can’t wait to kick off our year of exploration!
