OBERON is the A.R.T.’s second stage, a destination for theater and nightlife on the fringe of Harvard Square.
In addition to offering work from the A.R.T’s main season, OBERON is also a thriving incubator for emerging artists to imagine new projects that could only exist in this exciting club theater environment. Hundreds of artists and performance groups brought work to the space each year. OBERON regularly features local performers including aerialists, beat poets, food artists, tap dancers, gender-bending sketch troupes, comedians, hula-hooping burlesquers, and pop-and-lock human statues to name but a few.
Rooted in the mission of OBERON, A.R.T. has launched a multi-year program of work and mentorship with three local performance groups: Boston Circus Guild, Liars & Believers, and Touch Performance Art.
