that resonate, like Toronto’s dw wkh rj, and those that simply want to show solidarity, like qjolvk khdñ wuh in Berlin, Germany. And where will the New York–based Svich be stationed? She’ll be in attendance at a Barnard College reading co-sponsored by the duwk qvwlwxwh, and one at qvhpeoh wxglr khdwuh in May. She won’t be able to see all the readings, but that’s theatrical business as usual. As she puts it, “Any theatre that you make exists outside of you and travels on its own terms.” That’s a kind of spill we can fully endorse. Visit www.nopassport.org/ thewayofwater.

Harbor Stage Company was born. Details of its inaugural three-month season are still forthcoming. In the meantime, the troupe will offer a presentation at April’s “Wellﬂeet Blossoms” festival to introduce itself to the community. WHAT’s executive director dun rxjk is philosophical. “We always understood we wouldn’t be at the Harbor Stage for-
ever.” Indeed, that’s one reason the company built a second space. Still, Hough admits, “Actors are going to miss the sunsets before they go on stage. I sat there last summer during one of those sunsets and told them, ‘This may be a funky theatre, but it’s the most beautiful theatre in the world.’” Visit the companies’ sites: www.harborstage. org and www.what.org.

The building’s owner, reñ huw Ý huulv, had leased it to WHAT for $24,000 per May-to-October season, but in January declined to renew, opting instead to rent to a troupe of former WHAT actors called the dueru wdjh rpsdq|, under the leadership of rehuw ursi. uhqgd lwkhuv— who worked since 2008 at WHAT with HSC co-founders pdqgd roñ olqv, rqdwkdq lhoglqj, wdf| lvfkhu and hzlv khhohu—says the move was years in the making. “While we worked there, we got a real sense of the company that started that space with an artist-run ideal. That was the big rea-
son we kept coming back.” In 2007, WHAT built the Julie Harris Stage, a 220-seat second stage a few miles inland. Eventually, as Withers and others saw it, the company began to shift its producing focus to running a year-round performing arts center. Then, last year, longtime WHAT artistic director hii lqq stepped down. Spurred by these developments, the
