Love, Redefined

The spirit of Love, Redefined is non-commercial, non-traditional love. This year we have invited artists to reinterpret, remix or re-imagine a traditional sonnet or love poem through poetry, theater, dance, music and multimedia. Join us for what is sure to be a thrilling evening of new work by some of our favorite playwrights, poets, choreographers and performers, as well as exciting new voices!
