Every summer a group of teachers come to American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco to plunge into the art of acting and dramatic collaboration. Through a series of movement, voice, and devised theater workshops the teacher becomes the student by taking creative risks. Together we re-ignite a passion for expression that leads them to bring to new insight into their classroom practice.
My role is the director of the devised theater project that is at the core of their experience. We go from blank page to sharing performance in five days and along the way uncover new skills that enable us to listen, trust, communicate, and collaborate with our fellow teachers, our students, and ourselves.
