After decades of oppressive regimes, youth led revolutions and protests erupted in all corners of the Middle East, demanding change, democracy, and human rights. Access to the Internet became a critical tool for mobilizing disparate groups of people, sharing information, broadcasting the live footage worldwide, and soliciting solidarity and media attention.

A bold and innovative theater company has called on artists to share their reactions through original performing and visual art. On May 25, Hybrid Theatre Works presents The Artist Response Forum: "The Revolution Will be Live-Streamed," featuring artists from the US and abroad on the cutting edge of their fields. The audience will witness pieces of theater, dance, video, and visual art that ask the big questions about the implications of these uprisings. The performances will be followed by an after-party to spark new conversations and reactions.
