“Too Close For Comfort – Creating an Environment of Care in the Theatre” guided by Lorene Stanwick

October 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

“Too Close For Comfort – Creating an Environment of Care in the Theatre” presented by Workman Arts’ Rendezvous with Madness 2020 Festival

Theatre artists make and see theatre to challenge and be challenged, to share and listen, to ask and be asked questions that might not be asked elsewhere. We sometimes tell stories that might be difficult for others to hear. We can hit a nerve, touch a deep wound, or flick a switch that triggers old memories, reactions or feelings.

So how do we take care of our audiences when we offer sensitive material? How do we take care of the performers who reach deep into their souls and put them on stage, show after show? How do we ensure everyone else on our team is ok? And whose responsibility is it?

Playwright, actor, producer and instructor Lorene Stanwick shares some strategies and ideas to navigate these sometimes-murky waters using “Broken Branches”, her play that explores the issue of sibling abuse, as a guide.
