Hindsight is an artistic response to the events and experiences of 2020. Nina Simone believed that the definition of an artist is a person who chooses to reflect the times. She believed artists have a duty to shape and mold their countries by reflecting them in the most crucial, desperate times. As a department that prides itself as a training ground for artists, we felt compelled to respond and reflect. This fall, students worked closely with the Spokane and Whitworth communities to generate an original virtual performance of song, dance, and stories that will help us reflect, process, and shape this moment of our collective experience.

Whitworth University Theatre
Whitworth Theatre is a collaborative training ground for storytellers, performers and theatre-makers. We believe theatre is rooted in the investigation of the diversity of the human experience and can only be successful when it is actively anti-racist and disavows all forms of oppression. Through rigorous personalized study, students learn to amplify their voices and articulate meaningful connections between the art they create and the beliefs they hold.
We are a vibrant, collaborative learning community that welcomes all students to explore and enhance their creativity through main-stage productions, our Festival of Short Plays and more. We focus on providing individualized experiences to encourage students artistic voice, whether acting onstage or working backstage. On a typical day, you'll find students rehearsing an acting scene, painting a set, choreographing an original student-led piece, or just enjoying being together as a theatre family.
