InterGens is a FREE multi-generational program which brings high school students, recent graduates, working artists and lifelong learners together to create original, ensemble-driven theatre that considers the perspectives of all ages.

This devising process begins with story sharing, skill building and experimentation as an ensemble. Between gatherings, participants also read and watch plays, performance art and other media selected around a unifying theme.

At the end of this process, the ensemble prepares for their culminating performance by curating their existing work and generating new scenes using a variety of approaches, including improvisation, movement, clowning, personal writing and theatre games.


Program Dates

The summer 2023 session of InterGens begins on Tuesday, June 27 and runs for six weeks with a culminating with a final, in-person performance on Monday, August 7.
