Covers of Moment Work: Tectonic Theater Project’s Process of Devising Theater and Ensemble-Made Chicago: A Guide to Devised Theater.

Wednesday, December 12
Segal Theatre
6:30pm Discussion + 3:00pm Workshop + 5:30pm Book Talk

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.

What is devised theater? This form, which confounds traditional notions of theatermaking, is itself confounding. It has come to mean many different (and sometimes conflicting) things, depending on the context. Join our working group discussion, featuring producing institutions, artists, legal experts, and scholars, as we attempt to create a comprehensive definition for the “devised theater.” What happens when the collaboration expands beyond traditional definitions? How is the work curated, produced, presented, compensated and credited?

3:00pm Workshop
Register at mestc@gc.cuny.edu for a special Devised Theatre afternoon workshop with the Dramatists Guild on their new devised theater partnership contract templates.

5:30pm Book Talk
with Jimmy Maize/Barbara Pitts McAdams, Moment Work (2018), and Coya Paz, Ensemble-Made Chicago: A Guide to Devised Theater (2018)
