TRU will hold a community gathering via Zoom
A reliable haven for lone artists, Theater Resources Unlimited is now in its second year of non-stop weekly community gatherings this Friday, having offered more than 90 conversations and unlimited camaraderie to date since April 17, 2020.
TRU is hosting its Community Gatherings every Friday at 5 p.m. ET via Zoom, to explore artistic and theater making in the time of COVID-19. These crucial conversations will continue as the theater reopens. Ask questions, provide answers, be part of a community – it’s an opportunity to network with theater professionals and talk about surviving theater during the shutdown, and what we’re up to now, at the ‘to come up.
To receive the Zoom invitation for future meetings, email [email protected] with “Zoom Me” in the subject header. These gatherings are free for TRU members, non-members are encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation – or consider joining TRU – to support the organization during this difficult time.
Friday 18/03 – Going Off Script: Engaging an audience with “participatory” works. In the room: Brisa Areli Muñoz, theater director, cultural worker and arts educator whose expertise lies in the design of original participatory works, artistic director of the New York City Department of Education’s All-City Theatre; and Pablo Hernandez Basulto, Community Impact Manager for Public Works at the Public Theater. Non-traditional ways of creating theater have a long and proud history, yet they are not understood – or are misunderstood – by many theater professionals today. Now that we are stepping back into a post-COVID world of live performance and having had a year and a half to reconsider our priorities and our art, perhaps now is a good time to explore creative options. Come hear participatory theater practitioners talk about their passion and ways of expression that engage audiences.
