Nervous Theatre Summer Intensive (High School/Undergrad)
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.
Student Summer Intensive - Work with Nervous Theatre!
In partnership with The Ellen's TATE Academy, Nervous Theatre will be inviting a select number of high school and college students to participate in a 3-week intensive to coincide with our developmental lab.
We are thrilled to offer select students the opportunity to work alongside professional company members and our acting interns, giving them a unique glimpse into Nervous Theatre's creative process. Students will participate in company warm-ups and engage in explorations of physical theatre.
Nervous Theatre's Intensive is open to students entering their Junior or Senior years of high school as well as current undergrad students.
