On March 16, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Harlem Stage was forced to close the Harlem Stage Gatehouse, a magnificent performance space. On May 8th they announced their expansion into the digital space with two exciting weekly digital programs, the Dive Deeper Conversation series and From the Archives. Each program will air simultaneously on their Facebook, Instagram, and HarlemStage.org.

Dive Deeper Conversation Series
The Harlem Stage conversation series, Dive Deeper, can now be enjoyed in your home. Every Monday at 6PM, a member from their family of artists, creators and thinkers will engage the mind, body and soul in ways that will teach and inspire participants during this difficult time.

Harlem Stage has commissioned composers, choreographers and authors to create new work. The series will "dive deep" in conversation with artists to learn more about their inspirations and creative processes. Pulling back the curtain on building a creative team, aka a wolf pack, securing resources to move work from ideation to premiere, and staying grounded during a global pandemic. These conversations are sure to enlighten and uplift, whether you are an artist yourself or lover or art!

From the Archives
On April 9 Harlem Stage shared their first performance From the Archives, with 2019's Antigone in Ferguson. Now, Every Thursday at 7PM, you can enjoy some of their most exciting past performances by the visionary artists of color who have graced their stage over the years.

Harlem Stage looks forward to a brighter future that will allow them to welcome visitors once again to the Gatehouse. In the meantime, they hope to stay digitally connected to their audiences with online programs to be enjoyed far and wide.
