 Exciting new works by poets, playwrights, choreographers, and composers inspired by HVMOCA’s JURIED SHOW WAR – directed by Mara Mills


A bit of history: Writing the Walls began in 2005 when Studio Theater in Exile’s co-founder and Artistic Director Mara Mills and Livia Straus, co-founder Hudson Valley MOCA, created WTW and invited poets and playwrights to contribute original works reflective of their interaction with the art in the Museum. Until Quarantine 2020 there were yearly on-site performances at HVMOCA where the audience moved from artwork to artwork and the poets read in front of them. To keep tradition during the COVID Quarantine STIE and HVMOCA produced Climbing the Walls and Writing (Off) the Walls online.  In 2022, STIE became formally housed in the HVMOCA’s black box, complete with stage, sound, lights, projection, and seating and performances moved to the theater.

$ 25.00 – General admission

$ 20.00 – students, seniors, HVMOCA members

Writing the Walls is a collaboration between Studio Theater in Exile’s Black Box Theater @ HV MOCA and HUDSON VALLEY MOCA, 1701 Main Street, Peekskill, NY. 10566. 

The project is in its 18th year. 

 “Year after year, I have experienced “Writing the Walls” as a participant or as a member of the audience.  In each scenario, I have been richly rewarded  As a member of the audience, I have been thrilled by the talent of our local wordsmiths and intrigued by their particular connections to a work of art- which often differ from my own!  All in all, “Writing the Walls” provides our community with an opportunity to engage deeply with art and artists of all sorts.  How wonderful! “ Marcy B. Freedman
