Devising: Theatre-making and creating from the Michael Chekhov perspective

One Day Only - NYC Workshop - Saturday November 16th 

with Sinéad Rushe

This one-day-only afternoon workshop will explore approaches to devising and theatre-making influenced by Michael Chekhov’s tools and broader ideas on design.

If you have an idea for a show you are thinking about, working on, or would like to work on, bring it to the workshop. You can also just show up without any particular idea!
