It’s where focus groups meet theater. You watch a play, you vote real-time, independently and anonymously on what you think is happening. Is this love? Is this sexual harassment? Is this racism?
Then, you participate or listen to a live discussion about the various takeaways from that play, and see how your view compares. The whole experience takes about an hour and is all online (for now.)
The beauty of Gray Zones is that there is often no right or wrong answer to our questions, despite how you feel during the play or what you may think happened. The live discussions illuminate how different our perspectives can be, and the moderated discussions help you walk away with a perspective you may not have had before attending.
The Gray Zones experiences are engaging, transformative, and creates a safe space for people to explore and leave with new ways of thinking and feeling. Our goal is to increase awareness, empathy and understanding of other people's points of view. To read more about what to expect in the Gray Zones, check out this article.
When we launch a show, we launch an interactive component with the play - a live meeting to talk about the findings.
After we close out the show, we archive the interactive portion so anyone can view it and see what it was about.
The next set of shows won't launch until February 2021 and we'll be switching to a new platform. In the meantime, check out our past work!
