The Art Part: A Two-Person Theatre Conference

with Todd London and Mark Valdez

Thursday 14 February 2019

Mark Valdez and Todd London created a two-person, livestreaming theatre conference that took place on Valentine’s Day to talk about the love of theatre, the art of the ensemble, the art of the playwright, the art of civic engagement, and the ways we carry artistic lineage and legacy into the future.

This was a way to explore questions they’ve been posing to each other over the years as colleagues and friends, questions not about survival or problems in the theatre, but questions about the art itself. This “conference,” then, is meant as a call to conversation, theirs and, we hope, yours, about the artform we love.

Mark and Todd issued a challenge to all listeners to hold artistic conversations of their own, large or small, public or private, before 1 May 2019.  Please let us know if you’re taking the challenge and let us know when you’ve had your conversation.  Write us at [email protected].
