Dramaturgy Open Office Hour Project to Re-Launch Next Week
On Wednesday, September 10, The Dramaturgy Open Office Hour Project will re-launch its weekly sessions for one month, in three cities on the East Coast.
Following a successful eight-week stint in NYC this past spring, the project will be returning there, and starting up in Philadelphia and Baltimore/DC for simultaneous sessions.
Free and open to anyone interested in attending, the project is designed to provide resources to playwrights, actors, directors, devisers, and any other theater artists who feel they could benefit from speaking with a dramaturg. Artists are encouraged to stop by with questions about research, project brainstorming, play structure, script submission, development processes, text analysis, theatrical canon; for grant/fellowship proposal editing or proofreading; or simply to discuss their work with some interested colleagues.
Every Wednesday from 4 to 7pm from September 10 - October 1, two dramaturgs in each city will be offering their services.
The NYC office hours will be facilitated by project founder Jeremy Stoller, at the communal table at Le Pain Quotidien, 124 Seventh Avenue (between 17th and 18th Streets), Manhattan.
The Philadelphia office hours will be facilitated by Amy Freeman, at the communal table at Le Pain Quotidien, 1425 Walnut St.
The Baltimore/DC office hours will be facilitated by Catherine María Rodríguez, at alternating locations in both cities, to be announced. Center Stage, the State Theater of Maryland with a Mellon Foundation-endowed dramaturgy program, is thrilled to join this initiative as the Baltimore/DC-based franchise serving the DMV region.
The project will be documented at opendramaturgy.blogspot.com, and through its Facebook page, facebook.com/opendramaturgy.
