The EST/Sloan Project is designed to stimulate artists to create new
theatrical works exploring the worlds of science and technology and to
challenge the stereotypes of scientists and engineers in popular
culture. Each season the EST/Sloan Project commissions and develops
new works and presents the results at various stages, from first
readings to fully mounted productions, in the FIRST LIGHT Festival.
Now in its fifth season, the EST/Sloan Project has commissioned more
than seventy artists and premiered over fifty plays, dance and
performance pieces. We hope you can join us.
