The Sandbox Artists Collective is a membership based collective of working theatre professionals formed as a place for mid-career artists to explore their craft in the company of their peers. It was originally created in the fall of 2008 by Freehold's Theatre Lab in an effort to continue to push for a renaissance of new, courageous and experimental work in our artistic community.
We strive to support each other in the development of new work, experimentation with form, and enhancement of the skills of our craft. To these ends we host a variety of events:
Member Projects - work by members including but not limited to new play readings, solo performances and ensemble created pieces.
Gymnasiums - opportunities for members to "work out" together, exploring movement, sound, writing for the stage etc. in new ways
Book Club - a monthly gathering for the purpose of reading and listening to a play out loud
Membership in the collective is by invitation. The Sandbox has Leadership, Programming, Communications and Membership committees that serve as the administration of the group.
We are a collective of Seattle theater professionals who dare each other to create through mutual cooperation and support. We work, play, and experiment with purpose. We form a center from which we expand and return, recruit and rally, and exceed our individual potentials.
