The New World Performance Laboratory (NWPL), located in Akron, OH, under the artistic direction of James Slowiak and Jairo Cuesta, is an evolving community of theatre artists, operating under the umbrella of the Center for Applied Theatre and Active Culture (CATAC). Since 1992, NWPL has toured its performances and conducted workshops in Italy, Poland, France, Belgium, Bulgaria, Lebanon, Romania, Wales, Brazil, Colombia, and various cities in the USA, including Chicago and New York. NWPL is currently raising funds for a production of Gilgamesh, PLAY!, the Akron International Festival of Alternative Theatre, and repairs to a new space. Help support this important alternative theatre group operating for 20 years in Northeast Ohio and the world!
