How can we find assurance and community in our upside down world? It is an especially taxing effort for theater artists, whose work and livelihoods depend on collaboration and communion. Enter the Working Group for a New Spirit, playwright Agnes Borinskys free initiative that offers a virtual home for transient artists, seminars in how to take stock of our lives, and more. Daniel Krane dives into this efforta series of gatherings for clarity and direction in our messy moment of distance and collapsethat the Bushwick Starr is hosting now through December 7.
