Welcome to HowlRound
We’re a free and open platform
for theatremakers worldwide.
We amplify progressive, disruptive ideas about theatre and facilitate connection between diverse practitioners. We function as a “commons”—a social structure that invites open participation around shared values. All of the content (essays, videos, podcasts) on HowlRound comes from the theatre community who chooses to participate—that means you!
Generosity from our community allows us to keep all our programs 100% free and open, and enables us to compensate our contributors—donate to help support HowlRound and the artists who are impacted, however big or small, by the unfolding uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lists of specially curated content by members of our community.
