Poetic Theater Productions seeks to define the modern genre of “poetic theater” by connecting and fostering a community of artists who are passionately creating relevant and accessible work and reinvigorating a conscious theater of language.  Through a multi-runged platform of developmental programming, Poetic Theater Productions offers resources and opportunities for poets, playwrights, and theater artists to develop new work and see it through to production. PTP seeks out and creates opportunities to connect with communities affected by the issues of topic within our productions, in NYC and nationwide, through collaborative projects and exchanges of art and ideas.  Poetic License is Poetic Theater Productions' festival of new poetic theater.  The festival will run Jan 21-27th 2013 at the Wild Project in New York, NY. www.poetictheater.com

Project Agent Orange is a movement company dedicated to understanding how war is inherited in the body. Founded by Natalia Duong in 2010, the interdisciplinary movement and research collective is interested in what movement can illuminate about trauma and memory through live performance. The work draws on testimonies from people affected by Agent Orange, ethnographic studies conducted through community devised performance in Vietnam, as well as research in Trama Studies, Affect Studies, and Performance Studies. The company recently performed three nights of an evening length show to sold out audiences at Dixon Place in Lower Manhattan and has toured to Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and New Jersey. PAO was the recipient of a space and production grant in Chen Dance Center's newsteps program, a featured artist in a4's Locating the Sacred Festival, and was nominated as a recommended artist for New York Live Arts' Fresh Track Series. projectagentorange.blogspot.com
