What is devised theater? This form, which confounds traditional notions of theatermaking, is itself confounding. It has come to mean many different (and sometimes conflicting) things, depending on the context. Join our working group discussion, featuring producing institutions, artists, legal experts, and scholars, as we attempt to create a comprehensive definition for the “devised theater.” What happens when the collaboration expands beyond traditional definitions? How is the work curated, produced, presented, compensated and credited?
