This Master Class offers rigorous training, community engagement, audience development and the opportunity to expand current pools of connection.
Bridgforth will direct a core group of local artists in the process of bringing an excerpt from River See to life. After a short rehearsal, there will be a public sharing in which audiences will be called to respond as witness participants. A perfect opportunity to invite people from different traditions, backgrounds and experiences to come together, to participate in an improvisational process. One that requires we listen. Are Present. Extend ourselves.
Touring Party: 2 (Bridgforth and 1 actor)
Length of Residency: Varies (2 Day Minimum).
Includes: Local casting, open rehearsal, a public sharing and talk.
