In addition to the mainstage performances, Rotate presents a pre-fest mini performance piece at the Overture Rotunda on May 5, a talk-back directly following the 7:30pm show on June 10, and a post-fest mini playwriting workshop on June 17.

Production History

Rotate Theatre Mini Fest combines world premieres with favorites from Indie Boots Theatre Festival which was produced by the Rotate ensemble for many years in Chicago. Over 200 artists collaborated on the festival to bring new short works to packed houses. Offering an array of genres, the plays deftly used humor and heart to grapple with (cis/mono/hetero)sexism, racism, colonialism, ableism, economic exploitation, and environmental degradation. Having reorganized as a nonprofit and relocated the Rotate headquarters back to Wisconsin where many ensemble members grew up, Rotate is excited for our work to be shaped by, and to serve, the Madison community.

Rotate Theatre Company projects are designed to contribute to larger webs of strategies that build more just futures for artists and the general public. To accomplish this, Rotate projects embrace practices that enrich the lives of collaborative artists, engage audiences in laughter and discussion, and incorporate multidirectional education.
