Making Sense of New Performance
A Fertile Ground Festival Event
FREE  |  12:30PM  |  Artists Repertory Theatre  |  1516 Southwest Alder Street

New creations and world premieres are all the rage in the performance community. This event gathers local dramaturgs, playwrights, ensembles, producers and audience members to discuss the creation and evolution of new work. What types of processes are used to move from the script or studio to the stage? How are new creation methods affecting the ways new plays are produced? What is the role of a producer or institution in the development of a new work?

Special guests include: Rebecca Lingafelter & Kate Holly (Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble), Rusty Tennant (Fuse Theatre Ensemble), Lue Douthit (Oregon Shakespeare Festival), Kate Bredeson (Reed College), Mead Hunter (New Harmony Project) members of Action/Adventure Theatre, Hand2Mouth Theatre and more! Jerry Tischleder, Producing Artistic Director, Risk/Reward, moderates this discussion.
