Date and Time

Event description


Boston arts and community organizations are collaborating with Fort Point Theatre Channel to explore the contemporary relevance of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

Using a variety of art and performance forms, the partners and FPTC are creating short works drawing on themes from The Tempest, such as the consequences of colonialism, racism, gender stereotypes, immigration, and climate change.

Tempest Reconfigured seeks to foster connections across partners, neighborhoods, and constituencies—connections that benefit all participants and the city. The project intentionally embraces diversity of races, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, neighborhoods, interests, and socioeconomic levels.

Tempest Reconfigured is funded in part by a Live Arts Boston grant.


FPTC selected partners based on such criteria as mission, interests, neighborhoods, constituencies, and capacity to collaborate in creating performance pieces. Each partner is creating a 10-minute vignette drawing on The Tempest and exploring themes of their choosing.


Citywide performances, bringing together the works of all partners will take place at:

  • Black Box Theatre at Codman Square Health Center, and 637 Washington Street, Dorchester, November 7 @ 7pm

  • Boston Public Library, Rabb Hall, 700 Boylston Street, Boston, November 14 @ 7 pm
