Poetic Societies is a multilocational and multimedia performance art laboratory for creating celebratory cross-cultural memories. We use new technologies to cultivate empathy among distanced communities. Our projects explore poetic living as resource for advancing social, political, economic, environmental, and communicational systems.

We are currently working on “The Enemy of My Enemy,” a four-channel telepresence theater piece between China, Iran, Russia, and the US in collaboration with The Hinterlands.
