Boundless Exposed 2020

Boundless Exposed is a workshop and mentoring opportunity for emerging theatre designers of color. During this five-week program, participating designers will have the opportunity to work alongside experienced mentors in shaping an installation-style design based on a short play.

For this program, Boundless seeks emerging theatre designers of color interested in an intensive collaboration with peers, professional designers, actors and directors. After receiving many applications, Boundless has selected set designer Amy Tsai, costume designer Nia Atwater, and lighting designer Bentley Heydt as participants in this year’s program. Set designer Ambar Colón Fargas will also be included as an apprentice participant. Program mentors will include lighting designer María-Cristina Fusté, set designer Jorge Dieppa, costume designer Sarita Fellows, director Elena Araoz, associate producer Amy Palen, and playwright Mariana Carreño.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Boundless Exposed 2020 will take place entirely online. At the conclusion of the program, participants will present their original installation design to a virtual audience of industry professionals, peers, and the general public. The final presentation will take place on Wednesday, June 10th. For more information please email us at
