Theater

Cleveland Public Theatre is a leading alternative performance venue presenting experimental and political theater as well as dance, music, poetry and performance art. Ms. Lushetich conceptualized and conducted research—including interviews with Cleveland residents—for a new city-wide performance piece. Cleveland Public Theatre connected her with other area arts organizations to generate interest in producing the project at a future date. She attended rehearsals, performances and educational programs throughout the community and gave workshops at partner organizations. Her ambitious plans for the Cleveland project introduced students and artists to new ways of thinking about performance and inspired a greater sense of possibility in the Cleveland art community.
