Upcoming Workshops

 Solo to Ensemble: March Training & Performance Intensive

March 7-18, 2016

1-4 PM in addition to outside rehearsals

In this two-week workshop, we focus on applying SITI’s training in Suzuki and Viewpoints to the rehearsal and performance of new ensemble-based theater works. Bring your personal research and artistic interests to develop alongside other theater makers. How does training affect your performance practice? How can individual artists thrive and pursue their own interests with/within an ensemble?

During the workshop, daily training in Suzuki and Viewpoints will ground our work together. SITICompany members will offer feedback and guidance as you develop your work in collaboration with the other Intensive participants. Outside rehearsal time is required. All participants will have free access to rehearsal space at SITI for the duration of the workshop. Showings of new work will occur throughout the two week workshop, and the intensive culminates in a public showing in SITI’s Zeisler Studio on Friday, March 18.
