Content Description

The Theater Offensive was founded in 1989 by Abraham Rybeck "to form and present the diverse realities of queer lives in art so bold it breaks through personal isolation and political orthodoxy to help build an honest, progressive community." The Theater Offensive mounts and produces festivals and individual productions by national and local queer performers, and also serves as a development environment for new theatrical work. In addition, The Theater Offensive works to build community through education, outreach, and political activism.1 The collection consists of performance and workshop evaluations (ca. 2006-2014) and MiniDV's and audio cassettes of performances (ca. 2002-2009). The collection is unprocessed. 45/3 Accessioned 2015 Aug 03.
