Event description

Description

The TEAM creates all of our work collaboratively through a variety of strategies including physical and verbal improvisation, solo and group writing assignments, and character and movement compositions. In a final production it is nearly impossible to trace any one line of dialogue or image back to a single author’s hand.

These workshops gives participants insight into a mini devising process, providing tools and strategies for solo and group creation, working through delicate issues of collaboration and group authorship, and bridging into the editing and synthesizing process.

Topics covered include:

  • Moving from intellectual or thematic ideas to dynamic theatrical moments

  • Generating material through physical and written assignments

  • Cultivating an ensemble bond and navigating emotional waters amidst a process

  • Strategies for editing as a group

  • Building Dances

  • Writing on your feet (and other approaches to improvisation)

This workshop is open to artists at all levels of experience, ages 18+.

Taught by TEAM company member Jessica Almasy with collaborators James Harrison Monaco and Jerome Ellis. This session will include perspectives and discussion around music and sound design in a collaborative devising process.

James & Jerome (James Harrison Monaco and Jerome Ellis) are a duo of musician-storytellers based in New York. They make hyper-literary, live-music story performances for theaters and other spaces. Their work has been presented by Lincoln Center, La MaMa, Under The Radar Festival, Joe's Pub at The Public Theater, Ars Nova, and The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, among others. They often collaborate with directors Rachel Chavkin, Andrew Scoville, and Annie Tippe. They are LCT New Writers in Residence at Lincoln Center, and they were part of The Public Theater's inaugural Devised Theater Working Group. They are collaborating on and scoring the new project by The TEAM, RECONSTRUCTION (Still Working But The Devil Might Be Inside), and they have scored many other theater pieces. They also work independently from each other on other projects, and they are both professional translators (of Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese). www.jamesandjerome.org
