19/20 Master Class

The TEAM, a Brooklyn-based contemporary theater ensemble led by Tony-winning Co-Artistic Director Rachel Chavkin, is in residence at the Hop working on developing their newest piece. In this 2-hour workshop, participants will be immersed in a mini devising process, and will be provided with tools and strategies for solo and group creation, for working through delicate issues of collaboration and authorship, and for 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)
