The Human Stage and Creede Repertory Theatre (CRT) are welcoming writers to their community in Colorado for their 2nd Winters Playwrights Retreat.
Last winter, 10 playwrights from throughout the country accepted our invitation for an extraordinary creative retreat. This year, we are extending 25 invitations. We want to share our winter with any playwright or group of artist who seek a place to recharge and create.
That’s right. Nestled in between the cliffs of this winter wonderland is a Lord D Theatre boasting some of the best performances in the United States. But they only have a summer season, so Human Stage and CRT want to use the serenity and creative energy of the Rocky Mountains to set the stage for new play development. You’ll stay in CRT housing, meet with artistic staff, enjoy dinner with staff and friends, and potentially have an opportunity to have your play read out loud by actors who have stayed the winter.
Details: You are welcome to stay and write for one week (Sunday through Saturday) December 7 –February 6. The retreat is divided into solo weeks and two group weeks. We want you to use this time for writing, networking and recharging. This is not a competition. We want you to create.
Two kinds of readings will occur:
1. If you choose, you may elect to have your play read by actors in an intimate salon setting. Afterward, you will receive feedback from the actors, staff and invited guest. We do not expect your work to be completed. In some cases, you may only have a few scenes in development if any. The reading could be at the beginning or end of your stay. Our goal is not to judge your work, but to provide you feedback for its development.
2. Four writers will have the option to do two public readings of work further along in the development life cycle. As in the salon readings, there will be a discussion after the reading but this discussion will also include the public. We encourage you to use the feedback and go back into writing mode. The public will be asked to come back at the end of the week and hear the results.
Artists whose works are ready, may be encouraged to submit a piece to CRT’s Headwater’s Festival for new works.
As an added bonus, we may also be joined by two technology firms. The Human Stage is extending invitations to technology firms that are changing the world. Their executives will be here to recharge and innovate and dream as well. Midweek, they will present to you their vision for social innovation. As with the readings, you will have opportunities to provide feedback. Afterward, you will spend 30 minutes creating a “mini message” and perhaps establish a new relationship that can benefit both of you.
If you can get yourself here and get yourself fed, we’ll provide the gorgeous scenery, and accommodations. You are welcome to bring actors, director or co-creators with you – for readings or planning pow wows.
