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

Monday, May 19. Join us for a day with groundbreaking director Anne Bogart, celebrating the publication of her collected writings on theatre, What’s the Story (Routledge, 2014). Her latest collection of essays explores the story-telling impulse, asking how she, as a ‘product of postmodernism,’ can reconnect to the primal act of making meaning and telling stories. The book also investigates how theatre practitioners can think of themselves not as stagers of plays but ‘orchestrators of social interactions’ and participants in an on-going dialogue about the future.

Afternoon Presentation: Presenting the SITI Conservatory

Meet a few of the artists of SITI’s inaugural Conservatory program as well as SITI Company members when they come together in a panel discussion moderated by Leon Ingulsrud about the future of young theater artists.  What does it mean to look forward to life in the theater in the 21st century and how does one prepare?

The SITI Conservatory trains theater artists to emerge with classically trained bodies, contemporary sensibilities, and rich flexible intellects. It is designed for independent artists from diverse backgrounds and features training in Suzuki, Viewpoints and Composition.

Evening Presentation:

Bogart will read selections from her book and discuss her work with playwright Charles Mee.

Presented in collaboration with Talia Rodgers (Publisher, Routledge).
