Description

For its landmark 10th anniversary, Collaboraction returns to the Chopin Theatre, where the inaugural SKETCHBOOK Festival debuted in January 2000, to present SKETCHBOOK X. From June 10 – 27, one of the most provocative mixed-media theater festivals in the United States brings together hundreds of multi-disciplinary artists to create an immersive, celebratory and infinitely creative world where audiences can be both spectator and artist.

The sky is the limit this year as Collaboraction explores the theme of “exponential.” The festival features 19 never-before-seen original works, all seven minutes or less, including works by Sean Graney, Brett C. Leonard, The New Colony Ensemble, Anthony Moseley, A Red Orchid’s Youth Ensemble, and more, intermingled with a different live musical performance each night.
