ArtsEmerson is excited to announce that today it will launch its newest digital initiative, Together Apart: Explore New Worlds from Your Home, a curated series of performances previously presented by the organization in Boston, as well as new video conversations with bold and imaginative artists associated with those creations.

The digital series will offer regularly posted content via TogetherApartAE.com, an opportunity for audiences to view past ArtsEmerson performances at home.

ArtsEmerson is asking interested participants to register for the series here so that they will receive updated access links and viewing reminders for all online events.

ArtsEmerson, the professional presenting and producing organization at Emerson College, was in the midst of its 10th Anniversary Season when the difficult decision was made to cancel or postpone all remaining programming.

To celebrate that milestone, the organization had programmed ten engagements Ė five new commissions and five reprises of shows from past seasons. The fifth and final new commission of the season, Plata Quemada, completed two performances before closing early to protect the health and safety of audiences, artists and staff.

Of the seasonís three remaining shows, all reprises of past engagements, Octavia E. Butlerís Parable of the Sower was rescheduled to Fall 2020, while both 69ļ S. and Metamorphosis were cancelled.

The Together Apart digital series begins with a recorded video conversation about the play Mala, which had its world premiere at ArtsEmerson in Fall of 2016. The playís writer and star, Melinda Lopez, and its director, David Dower, talk about the experience of bringing this personal and poignant drama to life on stage.

The conversation is available for viewing here and was produced in response to the recently-announced collaboration between WGBH TV, Huntington Theatre Company and ArtsEmerson which is bringing a televised version of the play into homes on WGBH 2 and YouTube TV Thursday, April 09 at 10pm.

While recordings of the cancelled performances were not available for inclusion in this series, over the following weeks, Together Apart will include streamed performances of four other shows that represent ArtsEmersonís past.

In addition to Mala, there will be two-week windows to view Sequence 8 (The 7 Fingers, Montreal), Torrey Pines (Clyde Petersen, Seattle) and See You Yesterday (Global Arts Corps, Cambodia).

The digital series will include performances and conversation with The 7 Fingers, Clyde Petersen of Torrey Pines, and the Global Arts Corps.
