What are the ways in which theater can more fully engage contemporary artists and audiences? Can theater be narratively connected to other art (beyond traditional theater design), and how can the utilization of various forms of storytelling be merged into one cohesive narrative?  What are the social and cultural implications in creating this work, and what are its challenges? Theater creator Will Power explores the genesis and execution of the Detroit Red Project, a multi-pronged theater work that utilizes forms of storytelling as varied as film, the visual arts, as well as community-engagement practices, to artistically push the envelope  on what performance can be for a new era.
