February starts with a look at how best to build the circumstances for success and well-being in performance-making. By focusing this question through the lens of creative producing, the conversation will circle case studies and world-building scenarios for how performance gets made, and how companies can thrive creatively in a world where support feels harder to access.
Why do we “open” shows? Aren’t they always in a state of opening/emerging? How can audiences collaborate in the creative conversation? How can an audience’s engagement and involvement help deepen the path of the creative team? How can we provide spaces that encourage breath and spaciousness? How can we open pathways for supporting creation?
Hosted by Sarah Garton Stanley (The National Creation Fund), in discussion with Marcus Youssef (Siminovitch Prize winning playwright), Adrienne Wong (SpiderWebShow), and a group of incredible arts leaders, this morning is dedicated to energizing our sector and explore ways of transforming our ways of creating.
