Conference

56th National Conference on Outdoor Theatre

Where theatre leaders share their experience and explore new concepts!
This year’s gathering was hosted by The Santa Fe Opera in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Oct. 1 – 3, 2019

This year’s conference was packed with round table discussions, networking events, tours of The Santa Fe Opera complex, and informative presentations including surprising new concepts in projection design/technology for outdoor performances and creating/presenting site specific theatre pieces.

Provocative roundtable discussions covered topics from, creating new content for outdoor theatres, to ideas on fostering alternative income, to brainstorming on a variety of operational and artistic challenges that theatres face.

We enjoyed creative inspiration by way of a tour of Meow Wolf, which truly was an immersive storytelling experience and exhibition that has interactive performance elements.

Tours of The Santa Fe Opera facilities shared the recently completed $38M renovations and improvements that have benefited audience members, theatre staff, the environment and the local community.
