Directing for Ensembles and Devised Work

Tuesday, December 6

The TEAM creates all of our work collaboratively through a variety of strategies including physical and verbal improvisation, solo and group writing assignments, and character and movement compositions. In a final production it is nearly impossible to trace any one line of dialogue or image back to a single author’s hand.

Artistic Director Rachel Chavkin will lead our Devising Within A Democracy workshop, focused specifically on the role of the director in a devised or ensemble-driven process. This intimate workshop will cover tools and strategies for group creation, delicate issues of collaboration and authorship, and the editing and synthesizing process. 

Sorry, this event is over.
This workshop is currently sold out. To add your name to the waitlist, please email with you name and phone number, and with "Directing Workshop Waitlist" in the subject heading. In the event of cancellations, we will offer additional spots to the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis.
