The Play Company is an award-winning theatre that produces contemporary international plays in New York City. As the Director of Development, I think a lot about network and audience building. I'm looking to develop an app that will allow us (the theatre) to share information about what's going on around the world in terms of playwrighting and other theatre arts.
The idea is to be able to quickly share information that we've been able to collect from being in the business of producing foreign and domestic work for the last 14 years.
I like the idea of a passport as I'm thinking of the app as something you can keep in your pocket that lets you explore the world. Ideally, we'd be able to update it based on different countries/regions or different practices in theater.
Currently in theatre, information isn't shared quite like this and we're hoping to change that - to create something more like a dialogue. Ideally, we'd be able to use the app to see what people found most interesting and where they would like to see work from next.
