Annually, HERE Arts Center's The American Living Room (TALR) festival supports the development of new, multi- disciplinary works & artists in a setting that strives to make theatre as much a part of everyday life as watching TV. TALR's signature 'comfortable living room environment,' with an eclectic mix of easy chairs and plump couches, offers audiences a place to experience challenging and compelling theater in a laid-back, familiar setting. Each year, TALR invites a wide array of daring directors, writers, choreographers, performers, puppeteers, composers, film/video makers and visual artists to share their work. The 2007 festival is host to more than 25 projects and involves approximately 300 artists. Curators challenge artists to take bold risks, surprise themselves and provoke audiences.
