Pass Us the Microphone, Please: Devising Theatre with Marginalized Communities

with Dontá McGilvery

July 20 – 23 | M – TH | 9a.m. – 4p.m. | ONLINE

Pass Us the Microphone, Please: Devising Theatre with Marginalized Communities:

Is the theatre accessible to every community? Who decides what stories make it to the "main stage"? Why are there only a few minorities in the theatre productions I see? If you have asked yourself any of these questions, this class is for you. For far too long people in marginalized communities have been excluded from presenting their own narratives on stage. As a result, negative stereotypes and false images of people and groups have been perpetuated. This class teaches students how to be co-creators with people within marginalized communities. As someone rightly said, "it's not that communities of color don't have a voice, they just don't have the mic;" this class prepares students by teaching them the art of passing the microphone so everyone can tell their own stories on stage.

Performer as Creator : Site-Specific on Zoom! with Claire K. Redfield

July 27 – July 30 | M – TH | 9a.m. – 4p.m. | ONLINE

In Site-Specific performance, artists use their body, each other, and the physical space to create an original performance. But what about creating a performance online? Could chat be used to create a narrator? Can the squares of Zoom be used as the "set" for choreographed movement? What about a customized journey for the audience where they start in break-out rooms and then gather together towards a climactic finish? In this class, we will look at Zoom specifically as a space to create an entirely new form of performance. Come ready to get curious, play, and embrace yourself fully as the artist you are TODAY.
