Redmoon Theater produces live performances that combine contemporary art and traditional theatrical forms. Using masks, huge puppets, acrobatics, and whimsical mechanical devices, Redmoon creates theatrical spectacles that take place on stages and in public spaces such as streets, parks, and in architectural landmarks. Its performances are collaborative in nature and encourage non-traditional theater audiences to forge new relationships between fellow audience members, the work itself, and the location in which it takes place. This grant supports artistic, education, outreach, and operations activities.
