Devised Theatre Initiative:
THE PROMPT/TITLE: "No Entrance Without Papers"
-Ensemble will select their sources of inspiration as their creative container (examples: a photograph, a poem, a fictional or non-fictional short story, a memory, interviews, a question, etc.).
Ensemble will be asked to clearly articulate how their sources informed process and product, form and content.
Each ensemble will create a unique performance vocabulary informed by their source materials. This vocabulary should include movement, voice, visual image, sonic landscape, text and scenic environment and communicate the piece's style and aesthetic.
