Special Event

Convened and Moderated by Robin Whittaker

As theatre and performance colleagues we are often asked to produce, direct, design, and otherwise create theatre and performance at our institutions. This may be as part of the job we were hired to do, or it may arise unexpectedly for a multitude of reasons. The work may be with our students or in connection with the community (or both). But it is frequently localized and we don’t often have the opportunity to discuss the theatre we create.

These two sessions seek to bring some of our theatre work to light. They are also intended to address one of CATR’s great challenges by asking the question: “How can our own theatre practices help to attract artists to become more active in CATR?”

We look forward to robust conversations in Parts I and II of “The Artist-Scholar Produces”!
