ATHE Welcomes New Affiliate: Indie Theater Now
At its annual meeting in Orlando, the Governing Council voted unanimously to accept a request for Affiliate status from digital publisher Indie Theater Now and its parent organization The New York Theatre Experience. Indie Theater Now (ITN) joins a list of formally recognized affiliate organizations that receive several benefits in partnership with ATHE, including articles in ATHENews, access to ATHE’s listservs, a link from the ATHE website to the affiliate’s site, and panels at ATHE’s annual conference.
By way of introduction, ITN editor Martin Denton writes:
Indie Theater Now is very excited to be accepted as an affiliate member of ATHE, and we invite all of ATHE’s members to take advantage of the resources we provide. Indie Theater Now (ITN) is a digital theater library--a place where people can discover and read a broad array of new plays from the American independent theater sector. We have an ever-growing library of plays that have received their premiere productions from some of the leading experimental theater venues and festivals, including La MaMa, Seven Devils Playwriting Conference, Soho Think Tank’s Ice Factory, New York International Fringe Festival, and United Solo. ITN is much more than a catalog, though: it’s filled with dynamic, continually updated content that provides background and context created by the playwrights themselves and other artists. Our objective is to open the door to the previously inaccessible regional and NYC independent theater movements for individuals and organizations across the nation.
