Dramaturgs Needed for Microturgy Gig
BUILD from Here: the future of ensemble theater
– a digital convening (September 12th & 13th, 2020)
LMDA & foolsFURY ARE SEEKING DRAMATURGS to connect with ensemble theater artists for BUILD from Here – an invigorating, think-tank-style convening of conversations & workshops centered on our theater industry in this COVID-19 world. As a highlight of the program, ensemble theater companies will present 5-minute Art Shares to introduce the work they would have performed at the postponed FURY Factory Festival of Ensemble and Devised Theater, the state of their practice now, and their plans for the future.
WHAT’S THE GIG? We’ll match you with an artist/company and you will:
- Engage in a 60-min conversation with them, serving as outside eye in crafting their 5-min Art Share presentation
- Create a Word Cloud – a simple, visual reflection on the artists and their work to be shared with the audience at the end of the Art Share
PERKS? Dramaturgs will receive:
- Visibility & promotion for your practice via a personalized digital calling card shown during your Art Share
- Access to the full convening & special networking events
- Free one-year memberships to Network of Ensemble Theaters and the NET Connector app, and an association with Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (TBA soon)
- An honorarium of $25 toward your time
WHO’S THIS FOR? Rooted in the San Francisco Bay Area but international in scope, BUILD will bring together diverse artists & activists from around the U.S. and beyond. Dramaturgs of any age, gender, orientation, race, and geography are welcome to participate in this unique gathering.
