Devising Ensembles

Dates TBD at Soldier On! in Pittsfield

WAM’s Veteran Ensemble workshop will be run in collaboration with Soldier On! at their new home for female veterans in Pittsfield.  Over the course of three days, the veterans will devise material on the theme of suffrage and citizenship. The workshop will culminate in a short performance that will be shared with the veteran community and will be captured on video created by Outpost productions to share with the WAMily.  This workshop will be led by WAM Teaching Artists Talya Kingston and Lia Russell-Self.

Dates TBD at Zion Lutheran Church in Pittsfield

This brand new intergenerational ensemble is a two-day performance workshop for people of color.  The ensemble will use creative theatre techniques to explore the theme of suffrage and reclaiming power over our citizenship in this election year.  The criteria for performance are enthusiasm and the creative impulse to voice your ideas and feelings using multiple forms of artistic expression. This will culminate in a short shared performance and be captured on video to share with the WAMily.  This workshop will be led by WAM Teaching Artists Lia Russell-Self and Trenda Loftin.
