This new series from ALL ARTS, co-produced by En Garde Arts Artistic Director Anne Hamburger and four-time Emmy winning television producer Jesse Green, highlights new theatrical work by artists using their craft to explore the most important issues we are facing today, from climate change to immigration, homelessness to identity politics. Interviews with playwrights, directors and performers combined with excerpts of new theatrical work in its earliest stages of development, peels back the curtain on the birth of theatrical ideas.

A preview of what is to come in En Garde’s UNCOMMON VOICES series, featured on WNET’s ALL ARTS program.

Episode 2: Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes)

Uncommon Voices is an intergenerational series for art, activism, conversation and community, which occurs (usually) on the first Monday of each month. Since launching in January 2019, we’ve presented dozens of playwrights, directors and performers whose work is at the intersection of art and social justice. Artists that have been featured in Uncommon Voices are grappling with subject matter that has ranged from the issues of teaching teens at Rikers; misogyny and #MeToo; the climate crisis; and xenophobia.
