Cornerstone Theatre Company
Collaboration with Stut Theatre and the Clinic
Building upon their collaboration in March 2017, Cornerstone Theater Company hosted six artists from the Stut Theater and Van der Hoeven Clinic, (both based in Utrecht, Netherlands) in Los Angeles, California. During Fall 2018, they participated in an exchange of methodology, art making, experiential learning, and planning around a future collaboration. While in Los Angeles, the international artists participated as both contributors and observers to Cornerstone’s community-engaged theatre-making residency in Watts, a 2.12-square mile neighborhood in South Los Angeles. Their shared objective created a clear path for an 18 to 24-month international collaborative residency to make a new play. Their new community engaged theatrical work is planned to premier at the eighth International Community Arts Festival (ICAF) in Rotterdam, Netherlands in March of 2020.
