Now in its seventh year, the New Horizons: Original Works Festival is a must see event each season. It is a unique experience each and every evening and one you shouldn’t miss.
New Horizons is an opportunity for the MFA Directors to work in tandem with the creative force of a core group of actors with whom they will collaborate to develop an original piece of theatre inspired by a non-theatrical text. The material generated is likely to be as diverse as the source material each director has chosen: the folk legend of John Henry, Pablo Coelho's novel The Alchemist, and the Grimm's Fairy Tales. The goal is to explore the possibilities both in a collaborative creative response to a text and in sharing that response with others through the creation of a theatrical event, breaking the traditional mold of how theatre is created in our society and pushing the boundaries of engaging with our audience. We look forward to sharing the fruits of our exploration with FSU and the community this April.
