In honor of their sixth year, The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) will present the first of six different events of a season-long investigation focusing on the diverse artistic community of New York City.
OMPF and INTAR Theatre (Lou Moreno, Artistic Director; John McCormack, Executive Director) have created a dynamic partnership to present the first NY New York One-Minute Play Festival Of Latino Voices, one-half of the proceeds from which will benefit INTAR’s community based programming.
The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) is an NYC-based theatre company, founded by producing artistic director Dominic D’Andrea. OMPF works in partnership with theatres sharing playwright- or community-specific missions across the country. In each city, OMPF creates locally sourced playwright-focused community events, with the goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion by representing local cultures of playwrights of different age, gender, race, cultures, and points of career.
The work attempts to reflect the theatrical landscape of local artistic communities by creating a dialogue between the collective conscious and the individual voice. OMPF works with partnering organizations to identify programs or initiatives in each community to support with the proceeds from the work. The goal is to find ways to give directly back to the artists in each community. Supported programs have ranged from educational programming, youth poetry projects, teaching artists working in prisons, playwright residencies and memberships, and community arts workshops.
Partnerships have been created with theaters in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New Brunswick, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Boston, Miami, Minneapolis, and New York. Current and past partnerships include: Primary Stages, Victory Gardens Theatre, Cornerstone Theatre Company, The Playwrights Foundation, Boston Playwrights Theatre, Actor’s Express, InterAct Theatre, Mixed Blood, Passage Theatre, and others.
INTAR (International Arts Relations, Inc.) is an organization committed to the development of “theater arts without borders.” Over the past four decades, INTAR has produced classics, Latino adaptations of classics, cabarets, and 70 world premiers of plays written by Latino Americans, including 2005 Oscar nominee José Rivera and Pulitzer Prize recipient Nilo Cruz.
