Very few artists are lucky enough to spend their career working for other companies; the majority of their time is spent having to either find the work or better yet, create it themselves. This is easily the most overlooked aspect in an artist’s development and training. They are given the skills to prepare them as an actor, but not to succeed in the business of the art.
This workshop will prepare participants for grant writing, budgeting, insurance, and administration. Participants will use each of these concepts in practical scenarios based on their participation in the creation of theatre work. The concepts of movement, ensemble, and found space culminate in this workshop designed to answer the question, “How do I make this a show, and how do I get people to see it?”
