Why We Do What We Do

December 2, 2014

A thought for "Giving Tuesday":

Everything we do on Indie Theater Now and nytheater now and NYTE Small Press and our new website the Indie Theater Hall of Fame is based around a single compelling idea: that the artists we tell people about are going to somehow change the world through their art.

We think that by providing encouragement to these folks--by giving them hope and a platform and a voice--that we can help them to do the work they're meant to do; and keep on doing it.

And that's it: it's actually very simple.

If this feels like something that matters to you, maybe today you can help us with a contribution to NYTE. The fact that you will support us means much more than the amount you give. Donate by credit card at our secure site on Network for Good. Or donate by check:

P.O. Box 20063

We're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation which means your donation is tax-deductible in accordance with federal and state laws.

Thank you.






Loco7's "Undefined Fraction" at La MaMa
I got to pay a visit to one of my all-time favorite indie theaters, La MaMa E.T.C., for a performance of Undefined Fraction, which is part of the company's 2015 Puppet Series. This blend of edgy puppetry, physical theater, and dance is an exemplar of the kind of meditative hybrid installation/happening/drama that has been a mainstay of this East Village institution for decades.
