Established in February of 2011, the Theatre Institute at Sage is dedicated to providing quality live theatre and arts-in-education programming to Capital Region youth, educators and residents. The Institute also provides opportunities for Russell Sage students as performers,  technicians and teachers. Programs include educational support services for Sage productions (such as in-class preparations, teacher in-services and study guides), a Saturday theatre arts school, camps during school breaks, and several theatre camps during the summer for children ages 5-18. Programs take place on the Russell Sage College campus in Troy, which is home to three performance spaces as well as numerous studios and classrooms. 

FAQ Circus: We don't need another hero

Through a mix of circus, dance and theatre, We Don't Need Another Hero is a courageous journey of shedding away our alter egos to unveil our fragility and vulnerability as human beings. What if society allowed each and every one of us to defend humanity without a need for masks and capes? At our deepest core we discover what truly connects us to others, those important relationships, and that we are not alone or helpless in this challenging and often scary world. In so doing, we are united to our true power and the question; do we really need another "hero"?

The show is created in collaboration with modern dancer and director Michael Watts.
