Behind the Moon, Beyond the Rain… coLAB Arts presents a unique one-night performance event that celebrates the organization’s work and the New Brunswick community, and embraces the truth that “There’s no place like home.” The Wizard of Oz continues to reverberate in contemporary culture through its thematic portrayal of Courage in the face of Fear, Friendship, Collaboration, Escapism, Alienation, and Longing for Home. coLAB Arts has integrated these ideas into an immersive theatrical event in response to its work with local social advocacy organizations and community partners.
August’s programs will focus on the topic of End of Life Choices. With five states allowing medical aid in dying, should the right to life be decided on a state-to-state basis? How does the conversation differ within society, especially religion?
coLAB regularly chooses a theme or topic to guide our programs. Each curator decides how this theme will be explored. These conversations develop relationships between artists and communities, and generate some of our best ideas for long term arts projects. Learn More →
