ODES FOR A WORLD
IN SEARCH OF JOY

Inspired by Pablo Neruda’s Odes to Common Things, Amphibian Stage has commissioned Texas artists of all disciplines to create performance works that celebrate simple, human-made objects.

More Than a Stage

Amphibians are designed to adapt, and we’ve earnestly relished the task of making art for a changing world – and learned so much more than anticipated.

 

Streaming endeavors like  Julia Pastrana, Odes for a World in Serach of Joy, and Love Sucks reached both a local and global audeince-and opened our eyes to the question of accessibility in the live-arts sector.

 

De-Cruit Online reached veterans who potentially weren’t ready to enter an in-person class.

 

Our theatre artist friends learned new skills to help us send thousands of face masks and PPE materials to healthcare facilities.

 

This Is My Story taught us that the best way to listen is simply to share the microphone.

 

Like the organization, our building can also be more than a stage-it can be an election day polling place, a platform for a local election forum, and a water/bathroom stop during the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020.

 

“Theatre” as we knew it is returning-soon! We’re elated to open our doors, dust off the soundboard, and sit in ancipation while the lights dim on that very first opening night back. We will continue to find new ways to serve our community through theatre, using all the tools we’ve learned, so that we not only entertain, but also give audiences something to think about, invite conversations about big ideas, and make an impact—whether it be a ripple or a wave.
