About Lotus Lee Foundation:
Founded in 2017, the Lotus Lee Foundation is a non profit theatre organization in New York City partnered with the Lotus Lee Drama Studio which was founded in China in 2015. Lotus Lee is a pioneer of theatre in China, specializing in theatrical planning, investment, production, performance, marketing, and bringing new technology to the theatre. Lotus Lee Foundation strongly believe in cultural exchange, in bringing these two countries together, and in sharing our stories with each other.
Lotus Lee Foundation is proud to bring forth a new and exciting project: Lotus Lee New Work Initiative. Lotus Lee New Work Initiative is an open submission competition whose primary goal is to bring the best theatre and new voices from the United States to China and vice versa. This is why we’re interested in new works from playwrights who are hungry to be heard and are willing to discover new technology to bring their work to the stage. The submission is free. The best works are selected by a board of 5 judges who read the submitted scripts and ultimately decide on the best work. The play that gets chosen will be produced in 2019 with a significant budget and for a year-long tour in China with a potential remount in the States. The 5 judges consist of a mix of industry individuals and individuals from Performing Arts schools.
The School Ambassador Intern will be our most efficient way of getting student bodies to submit to our New Work Initiative and be involved with our other projects. This individual will be chosen based on qualifying characteristics that will help expand our Foundation to student bodies of different colleges/universities. We plan on choosing one student from different schools to be our representatives.
