ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
At the core of O.P.P.’s vision is a dedication to cross-disciplinary synthesis – presenting both newly commissioned works and pieces drawn from the canon, we aim to draw writers, musicians and visual artists (including those not generally associated with the theater) into the center of the production process to work on equal terms, rather than concentrating almost exclusively on the actors’ relationship to the text.
While focusing chiefly on historically informed works, O.P.P. also intends to serve as a megaphone for new voices. Every year, Boston’s schools and universities produce a large crop of energetic and gifted artists, musicians and performers. Yet many of them (especially those from communities of color) find it difficult to gain a professional foot-hold in the area’s tight-knit performing arts community. We plan to reach out aggressively and provide a springboard to this diverse and exciting pool of emerging talent.
