Curated by 1MPF’s Dominic D’Andrea
The One-Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) is the country’s largest grass-roots community-engaged theatre project, founded by Producing Artistic Director, Dominic D’Andrea. #1MPF is social barometer project, which investigates community zeitgeist and narratives through dialogue, consensus building, and a performance of minute-long moments generated by specific populations engaged in the work. #1MPF works in partnership with traditional theatres, cultural institutions, prisons, community centers, schools, universities, and social justice institutions sharing educational, community-focused, or public service missions across the country. The aim is to create locally sourced, radically inclusive community projects, rooted in the values and ideas of the participants. The work attempts to reflect the values, topics, trends, styles, ideas, and big conversations that bubble up to the surface in each community.
Partnerships have been created with theaters in over 35 cities including: New York, Trenton, New Brunswick, Newark, Montclair, Hoboken, San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Providence, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Bethesda, Washington DC, Atlanta, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, St. Louis, Ferguson, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Anchorage, Seattle, Honolulu, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Dallas, Austin, Mexico City, and others, with partnering institutions like Primary Stages, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Trinity Rep, New Georges at New York City Center, Z-Space, Victory Gardens Theatre, Cornerstone Theatre Company, The Playwrights Foundation, Boston Playwrights Theatre, Actor’s Express, InterAct Theatre, Mixed Blood, Walking Shadow Theatre, Passage Theatre, Phoenix Theatre, Kitchen Dog Theatre, Salvage Vanguard & ScriptWorks, ACT, Perseverance Theatre, Round House Theatre, Honolulu Theatre For Youth, and others.
