Reese has developed a way of creating original theater, capable of picking up and going anywhere, in any situation or location with an entirely local community cast. The process encourages easy collaboration with artists/performers of varying styles of capabilities. The end result is a stage worthy finished work which will be presented July 27/28 at 11 Jane St. Art Center. This technique requires very little resources and short rehearsal time, incorporates the techniques of Joan Evans, Mary Overlie’s Six Viewpoints and Reese’s own dynamic flare!
Workshop Participants: For those interested to continue beyond the two-day workshop; rehearsals meet a few times during the week (at times that work best for everyone) to create a community performance to show July 27/28 at 7 PM. The process is relaxed and fun.
