Denver Center Theatre Company’s Off-Center was created to engage new and younger audiences through artistic experimentation, including immersive theatre. With support from The Wallace Foundation, Off Center collaborated with Third Rail Projects on adventurous new work. Join us for a conversation between two organizations at the forefront of this work about re-contextualizing dance and theatre performance and engaging millennials.  They will share quantitative and qualitative data about how immersive and experiential works are becoming increasingly sought after across a broad range of demographics, and will examine their recent collaboration as a case study on how immersive work and integrated marketing and research efforts can foster new audiences and transform the conversation.

Speakers:

  • Charlie Miller, Associate Artistic Director, Off-Center Curator, Denver Center for the Performing Arts
  • Emily Kent, Director of Marketing, Theatre Company and Off-Center, Denver Center for the Performing Arts   
  • Zach Morris, Co-Artistic Director, Third Rail Projects
