Announcement about the HowlRound Theatre Map

Dear Theatre Without Borders network members,

I have some great news to share! Now you can “put yourself on the map” on the Theatre Without Borders Map and on the HowlRound World Theatre Map!


HowlRound is an online “knowledge commons by and for the entire theatre community”, a place where you can join a range of conversations by and about theatre makers, like yourself. Theatre Without Borders is thrilled to link up with HowlRound to support connections between artists nationally and globally.


The HowlRound Map is an ever-growing, user-generated directory for theatre artists of all kinds from all over the world.  Similar to our own Theatre Without Borders Map, the HowlRound Map’s purpose is to make artists more available to each other.  On the World Theatre Map, you can see what theatre is happening around the globe on any given day, you can search for artists using a variety of categories and tools, and you can add your own events and resources.  Like Wikipedia, anyone can add information and edit the Map. Currently, the project is in English, Spanish, and soon to be in French. As you will see, The Map already features thousands of people, organizations, and performances around the world.


To start, create a profile for yourself and your affiliate organizations. This way anyone searching the Map can easily connect with you and attend your events. When you create your profile, be sure to include Theatre Without Borders as an Affiliation.


HowlRound also welcomes you to author blog posts and articles for their commons.  To find more information about that, please visit, or get in touch with me directly.


Meanwhile, our Theatre Without Borders Map is still alive and well!  With its focus on grassroots artist-to-artist connection on the themes of social engagement, peacebuilding, and empowerment, the Theatre Without Borders Map will continue to help you make connections artist-to-artist and people-to-people.  HowlRound’s Map offers you a way to post your profile and inform a larger community about what you are doing.


As a Theatre Without Borders Next-Gen Member and a HowlRound World Theatre Map Ambassador, I am working to expand the categories on the Map to be as inclusive and useful as possible.  Any questions or comments are very much appreciated and can be posted in the Map’s forum or sent to me directly.


I look forward to seeing you on the Map!

2009 Upcoming Events
La MaMa E.T.C. in association with AATI presents:

Yanagai! Yanagai! by Andrea James (Yorta Yorta), directed by Harold Dean James and Karen Oughtred 

Opens Jan. 8, 2009
at La MaMa E.T.C. 


Yanagai! Yanagai! evokes a place where past, present and future exist as one. Set in a mythical landscape on the banks of the "Dhungula" which white fullas call "The Murray", features children and elders, spirits and ghosts, dingoes and min-min lights, threaded together to tell the tales of colonial law, a people and their land.

This program is made possible in part with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, LMCC and generously supported by Creative New Zealand, the New Zealand Consulate-General and the American Australian Association.
