In August 2020, curators Nicole M. Brewer, Faedra Chatard Carpenter, Jordan Ealey, Kristen Jackson, Leticia Ridley, and Nikkole Salter began identifying works that have deeply impacted them as Black women theatre artists, activists, and scholars. The collection will pay tribute to Black playwrights, poets, actors, and members of the National Black Theatre.
“I love having the pleasure and honor of programming the artistic content at Woolly Mammoth, and I also acknowledge that my perspective need not be the only one always centered,” artistic director Maria Manuela Goyanes said in a statement. “RESET is an opportunity for all of us to learn about and lift up these extraordinary—and often unacknowledged—contributions to our culture.”
RESET’s multidisciplinary experience combines dramaturgy, history, performance, and digital collection, featuring work from 17 artists. The collection is free to access through the end of the month.
Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company is a national innovator in the development and production of new plays.
