The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) is an NYC- based theatre company, founded by producing artistic director Dominic D’Andrea. OMPF works in partnership with theatres sharing playwright or community-specific missions across the country. In each city, OMPF creates locally sourced playwright-focused community events, with the goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion by representing local cultures of playwrights of different age, gender, race, cultures, and points of career.
The work attempts to reflect the theatrical landscape of local artistic communities by creating a dialogue between the collective conscious and the individual voice.
OMPF works with partnering organizations to identify programs or initiatives in each community to support with the proceeds from the work. The goal is to find ways give directly back to the artists in each community. Supported programs have ranged from educational programming, youth poetry projects, teaching artists working in prisons, playwright residencies and memberships, and community arts workshops. www.oneminuteplayfestival.com
Founded in 2010, EMP Collective is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to producing multi-media art and art events in the newly-designated Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District. EMP is comprised of a rotating art gallery for emerging artists that doubles as a rehearsal / performance space for theatrical and musical events, experimental collaboration, workshops, and film screenings. “A hub of artistic activity” that was voted Best Arts Collective in 2012 (Baltimore CityPaper), EMP has been lauded as one of the boldest “visions to change Baltimore” (Baltimore Magazine).
