The New Black Fest at The Lark
Starting in 2015, the Lark has partnered with The New Black Fest in its weeklong festival of celebrating, advocating, and showcasing diverse and provocative work in a festival of Black theater artists from throughout the Diaspora. With talkbacks and panel events surrounding a 10-hour rehearsal process and public staged reading for six new plays in progress, The New Black Fest provides an opportunity to build a community conversation around the development of new plays.
The Lark is proud to serve as a partner to The New Black Fest in its mission to celebrate insurgent voices within the diverse African diaspora through theater, music and discussion, gathering artists, thinkers, activists and audiences who are dedicated to stretching, interrogating and uplifting the Black aesthetic.
