Artists! Actors! Singers! Dancers! Storytellers! Musicians! Designers! Theater Makers! Performers by any stretch of the imagination! Let's make an original show.

Epoch Generation is a creative incubator to generate new narratives for a new epoch of performance. An intensive workshop led by teens, Epoch is a team environment for research and experimentation. The journey begins with documentary research to mine historic turning points. The process is a challenge to translate true stories into fiction by staging and producing an original show. Meeting on Tuesdays & Thursdays for 10 weeks, Epoch becomes a supported space for understanding our shared cultural narratives and learning something deeper about ourselves... and HAVE FUN DOING IT!

Open to people ages 14-19, this workshop is for participants from a VARIETY of performing arts interests and is geared towards creatives who want to explore NEW MEDIUMS through interdisciplinary collaboration. With support from Media Factory, we have the option to integrate new media into our performance. Will we? Don't fret! There is a role/job for everyone and no performance experience is necessary; simply a willingness to build a team, creatively collaborate, and be a part of a dynamic group experience.

The 10-week workshop meets twice a week and requires rehearsal and reflection outside of class. With their own material, participants will create an original show from start to finish. Facilitated by ITA's Trish Denton, the workshop emphasizes movement, imagination, idea-generation, group process, building community, and pushing your creative edge.

To culminate, we will host our final shows on Friday, December 2nd and Saturday, December 3rd (location tbd by the participants). Participants must be committed to both show dates.

Media training, full meals, and bus passes (by request) are included in the price of tuition. Please talk with us about school credit or community service hours for your participation. If you are requesting a SCHOLARSHIP, we ask that you meet via Zoom with the director of the show for to discuss your interest and commitment to the production.
