I’M JUST GOING TO LEAVE THIS HERE, BY DAVID DOWER

"When I first saw Our Secrets in 2015 in Budapest, it was a very dif­ferent time. I was overcome by the powerful sense of ensemble and the exhilarating feeling of seeing theatre artists in a country quite different from ours working at the top of their game. This, I remember thinking, is what ArtsEmerson’s commitment to putting the world on stage is all about. The show included mastery of the form and a global aesthetic; it was culturally specific in content and a gripping tale that Bostonians would never get to experience if we didn’t bring it home. My response was not so much about its relationship to us; I responded to its aesthetics.

In preparing to write this greeting, I came across a recent article on Atlantic Media’s news site Quartz.com. Written by Yale History Professor Timothy Snyder, it offers a “20-Point Guide to Defending Democracy” against an authoritarian state. Among the points are quite a number that seem to be in conversation with Our Secrets. If these speak to you beyond the context of this play, you may want to read the whole thing.

Believe in truth. “To abandon facts is to abandon freedom. If nothing is true, then no one can criticize power, because there is no basis upon which to do so. If nothing is true, then all is spectacle…”"

Leadership“ArtsEmerson puts the world on stage and screen to help us understand our world, celebrate our place in it, and explore how we each can contribute to its transformation. We are passionately committed to delivering exceptional experiences for our audiences and operate from the belief that the arts belong to everyone. As we enter our 2016/17 Season, we invite you to come with us to places you have not been and share experiences you could not anticipate but will never forget. And, if you are so inclined, to engage with a room full of fellow travelers (who are your neighbors) to sort it all out. Let us begin to rediscover our community through the shared experience of art and conversation.”
