Reese Johanson is looking to collaborate with our community of artists!
Extraordinarily Ordinary by Reese Johanson (collective)
About the project:
For 6 months, Reese worked with a group of performing artists including theatre makers, dancers, writers and musicians in New Orleans. She has developed a production that is capable of picking up and going anywhere, presenting in any situation or location. The process is improvisational, utilizing Joan Evans Techniques and Mary Overlie’s Six Viewpoints with a very specific rehearsal structure. The process enables easy collaboration with many different types of artists of varying capabilities and skills. The end result is a stage worthy finished work of performance that requires very little resources and a short period of rehearsal time. In July she will be in Amsterdam, working with the Treehouse residency, collaborating with Marije Nie, Dutch performing artist, utilizing the same format for collaboration and performing.
This is a workshop using Joan Evans Techniques and Six Viewpoints. These techniques are what will be applied for composition for performance.
Come explore the process with us! If you enjoy your time working with Reese, join us to proceed into rehearsals for the dance / theatre performance.
Excited to create our plan with local artists, dancers, and thespians!
Who can join-
Open to performing artists with some experience in dance and theatre. Writers, visual artists and musicians who are comfortable moving are also encouraged to participate.
What does it entail-
After the initial workshop we will go into a rehearsal process using the material we source from the workshop. There will be 6-8 rehearsals to develop the finished performance. Rehearsals will be 2-4 hours each. The performance date and time is to be determined. There will be a small stipend for all performing individuals that will come from the contributions from attendees at the show.
Reese will work with our local performing artists to present this production with 3 weeks of preparation and rehearsal.
July 19 - Aug. 8
Contribution to the workshop suggested $25, No One Turned Away, (Pay what you can.)
