Educational programming is personal for us, because we also attended under resourced urban schools and free community arts programs were our lifeline. From our free workshops to our full scale productions offered at low-ticket prices, we nurture the next generation of theater artists and attract diverse audiences. We forge an ongoing community dialogue through our Play Hotel series of workshops, open rehearsals, & free readings.
This program is made possible with public funds from the State of New York, the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered in Kings County by Brooklyn Arts Council; and the New York City Department Of Cultural Affairs In Partnership With The City Council.
A bit of history:
Only in the theater can you create something out of literally nothing. Colt Coeur was founded in January 2010 and is a company of actors, writers, directors and designers. In just six years — Colt Coeur has been lauded by The New York Times with the broad recognition “these guys have chops” and the New York Post and Time Out have called our work “pitch perfect” and “wildly charming.” We’ve created three original plays (Seven Minutes in Heaven by Steven Levenson, Fish Eye by Lucas Kavner, and How to Live on Earth, by MJ Kaufman) in our uniquely collaborative style, and produced the world premieres of Recall, by Eliza Clark, Everything is Ours, by Nikole Beckwith, Dry Land, by Ruby Rae Spiegel, Cal in Camo, by William Francis Hoffman, and Empathitrax by Ana Nogueira. We’ve also launched our free week-long Playmaking workshop, our annual Parity Plays Festival (celebrating the work of female and trans playwrights & directors) and held public readings of a bevy of exciting new plays as part of our Play Hotel series.
