We're on vacation...
Forward Flux Productions recently completed our 10th production in Seattle, and we are currently on a much-needed vacation. We wish to thank our friends, sponsors, donors, Club X members, audience members, and the artists that worked with us – you all made what we do possible, and YOU ROCK!!!
We are proud of our 5 year track record in Seattle, amplifying the voices of women, POC and LGBTQIA artists, and providing an opportunity to engage with live art for all through our subsidized ticket program. In 5 years, our work touched over 6,000 audience members, we provided over 500 paid opportunities for local artists, we presented over 50 events, and commissioned and/or developed 8 new plays. During the span of that time, our company had gender parity and had race equity that was reflective of our city (35% POC artists). *Both percentages are based on artists appearing on stage and behind the scenes, combined.
While we’re on vacation, we won’t have any productions or new play events in Seattle, but you can still join our queer night life events with BeautyBoiz. If you’re interested in grooving out on the dance floor, or catching a wild drag/burlesque show, be sure to check out what’s next at our BeautyBoiz website.
If you want to be the first to know if/when new plans are made, be sure to follow us on FB, IG, and/or join our email list. Safe travels and never stop creating. We hope to see you soon!
Founder + Artistic Director, Wesley Fruge.

City Arts Interview
“Forward Flux has also always put its money where its mouth is in terms of elevating new talent. Their fully produced plays have included Benjamin Benne’s las mariposas Y los Muertos, Chisa Hutchinson’s The Wedding Gift and Claire Kiechel’s Pilgrims. Lindsay Joelle’s A Small History of Amal, Age 7 which ran at West of Lenin in September as a co-presentation with Pratidhwani, will be the company’s last show for the foreseeable future. We sat down with Frugé to talk about the uphill battle of producing theater in 2018 Seattle, as well as the company’s past, present and possible future.”
