"I'm excited to unveil our most international and ambitious season yet," announced executive director Mark Murphy. "Influential artists and thinkers from over 25 countries are bringing our theatre, gallery and lounge to life with provocative new work exploring our rapidly changing world.

They are influential cultural leaders from around the world — as well as emerging artists who are sure to have great future impact."
