This week’s Instagrammers-in-Residence are Neeley Gossett and Nichole Palmietto, founders of Found Stages Theatre. Here’s a look into their creative lives!
Found Stages creates original works of theatre for nontraditional spaces. Since our inception in 2014, we have partnered with Atlanta-area organizations to develop and produce plays outdoors and outside traditional theatre venues to attract a wide range of audience members, some seeing theatre for the first time. We like stories that give people a reason to get off the couch and leave the house. We like plays that aren’t complete until the audience gets there. We like artists who like the outdoors, coffee shops, warehouses, art galleries, and living rooms, and can imagine stories being told in those spaces. We like audiences who ask questions and take chances. We like shared meals and shared experiences. A reading of Decoration Day by Neeley Gossett, which is a section of our new play Third Council of Lyons will be read at The Alliance Theatre Feb. 17 at 6pm.
