You’re not looking at this in the right light
by Allison Bolah

You’re not looking at this in the right light is a multi-media installation by artist Allison Bolah in response to the play Gidion’s Knot. The installation considers both Pillsbury House’s community and facilities as it explores young people’s experiences of miscommunication. Through video, still photographs, ‘classroom’ installations, and web-based pieces, this project engages youth and adults who use the Pillsbury House space. Learn more »

I And This Mystery Here We Stand
by Natasha Pestich

I And This Mystery Here We Stand is a print-based public art installation by Natasha Pestich that responds to Pillsbury House + Theatre’s Spring 2014 production of Michael Milligan’s play Mercy Killers. Mercy Killers tells a deeply humanizing story about our current health care system, centering around a husband and wife and the impact a medical crisis has on their lives. In a similar fashion, I And This Mystery Here We Stand, recalls the personal perspectives of health care providers, volunteers and patients themselves through screen printed posters that portray some of the challenges and triumphs faced by regular folk.

What is Audience (R)Evolutions?

Through support from the Theater Communications Group, Pillsbury House Theatre is proud to be one of only ten theater companies nationwide to participate in the first ever Audience (R)Evolutions grant program. We are commissioning professional visual artists who live in the target communities to create public art projects that lead people into the issues explored in our 2014 mainstage shows. In addition, our resident teaching artists are developing curricula that explore themes of our productions in other Pillsbury House + Theatre center programs like the Afterschool program.

Pillsbury House + Theatre was a participant in the 2014 Audience (R)Evolution Program, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and administered by the Theatre Communications Group, the national organization for the professional not-for-profit American theatre.
