FROM THE BLOG
Now in our ninth season, ArtsEmerson has established a reputation for putting the world on stage here in Boston. We take pride in offering audiences access to artists and cultures from around the globe that would otherwise not be seen in the city.
ArtsEmerson’s seasons are an opportunity for the adventurous and the curious to explore the world. People frequently ask me how we even choose these shows, they seem so consistently different from each other, let alone different from the traditional understanding of what theatre is. When Angels Fall took a particular route to us. This is a story of being smitten.
Typically, a show landing in our season is one that we’ve seen somewhere in the world, and it has joined the ever-expanding list of projects we are inspired to share with you. And from that perpetually too-long list, we are guided by our mission to reveal the rich diversity of the world as we arrive at each season. It’s rare that we program a work that we’ve not seen somewhere first, rarer still that we would do that with an artist whose work is new to us.
