Originate + Generate
Aurora's New Works Initiative
Originate+Generate is Aurora Theatre Company’s new works initiative, including commissions, workshops, readings, and full productions of new plays. This incubator for forward-looking new work has seen tremendous growth since its inception in 2015. With a primary focus and investment in works generated by Bay Area artists, O+G provides extensive developmental support to playmakers. Aurora is proud to contribute Bay Area voices to the national theatre repertoire, and hopes to continue providing a space for playwrights to craft the stories that will inspire and illuminate a new world. Previous O+G artists include Jonathan Spector (award-winning Eureka Day), Christopher Chen (The Ruler), Beth Wilmurt (Olga), as well as Britney Frazier and Margo Hall (Laveau).
O+G Commissioned Artists:
|Christopher Chen||Barbara Damashek||
|Cleavon Smith||Jonathan Spector|
We will be inviting you to various workshops and presentations as the work is being created as well as a series of pop-up readings by other theatre-makers.
