While performing arts spaces remain closed, WNET ALL ARTS, their arts and culture hub, has got you covered for cultural content for the month of August!

On August 2, ALL ARTS began streaming THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL. The festival showcases the world premiere of seven 10-minute plays written by the best and brightest emerging playwrights of the African Diaspora.

August also marks the kick-off of the Ballerina Book Club, a new partnership between ALL ARTS and the American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer Isabella Boylston. ALL ARTS will add a dimension to Boylston's monthly book club with new digital content like original videos, a monthly newsletter, and author interviews.

The finale of Uncommon Voices, the series that peels back the curtain on the development of live theater, premieres on August 12 on the ALL ARTS channel. This installment features new works by Em Weinstein and Danny Pudi.

All the events can be viewed on the WNET ALL ARTS website. You can also catch THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL on the ALL ARTS Streaming app, and Ballerina Book Club at @allartstv on Instagram.
