Nervous Theatre Summer Intensive
In residence at Nervous Theatre’s Summer Developmental Lab
in Bozeman, MT (July 20 - August 7, 2020)

Nervous Theatre is a touring theatrical collective that aims to bring exciting and vital theatre to a wide variety of communities. Our nomadic theatre company will be taking up a residency this summer in beautiful Bozeman, Montana.

 

As part of our Summer Developmental Lab, company members will explore alternative performance practices and re-examine traditional audience/actor relationships for a "post-COVID" environment. The month-long residency will include the creation of an original theatrical work helmed by Artistic Director Connor Berkompas.
