ArtsWest 2022-23 Season: BEGIN IT.

This year, in a season called BEGIN IT, we’ll use music and theatricality to see what we can begin together.  We’ll make theater that has never been more in conversation with our community and our times.  We’ll examine pop culture and current events for what’s there and what could be, all while centering empathy, joy and possibility.  We’ll see two world premieres, two Seattle premieres, and for the first time ever, two generative projects – one through a partnership in community, and one begun right here by our own Associate Artists.  It’s a year to celebrate the courage it takes to begin and the power in building something new together.
