Poetic Theater Productions is proud to present our tenth annual Love Redefined showcase, Love Redefined: RENEW to take place Wednesday, February 19th, 2020 at 8:00pm at Judson Memorial Church, presented with Judson Arts. Love Redefined is a celebration of radical love of self and others with a night of poetic, theatrical, and musical remixes, re-imaginings and riffs.
Over the past ten years, PTP artists have created over one hundred and twenty original pieces for Love Redefined, exploring topics of self love, community and chosen family, male vulnerability, sexual freedom, queerness, and more. This year, in Love Redefined: RENEW, Poetic Theater Productions’ community of artists are drawing from these last ten years of response pieces as inspiration, continuing to redefine the conversation surrounding love, and setting the stage for the next ten years of poetic theater.
