The Storytelling of Marginalized People & The Business of Theater Classes

April is almost here and so is the start of some exciting online classes at Primary Stages ESPA! Learn about The Business of Theater with director John Gould Rubin or delve into The Storytelling of Marginalized People with beatbox pioneer Chesney Snow. 

Workshop: The Storytelling of Marginalized People - APRIL 10 & 17! 

Instructor: Chesney Snow (Creator, Soil Beneath at Primary Stages; Boxman in In Transit on Broadway and at Primary Stages)

For far too long, global majority—or BIPOC— populations have been marginalized in the Western theater-making world, and the storytelling for these populations had to become an artform of its own. In this 2-session workshop with Chesney Snow (The Boxman in In Transit on Broadway, Soil Beneath: An Empirical Decay), learn the history of these theatrical forms—such as hip-hop theater, spoken word, theater of the oppressed, and the choreopoem—and begin generating your own piece, pushing the boundaries of traditional theater and reimagining what the future can be.


The Business of Theater - STARTS MARCH 31!

Instructor: John Gould Rubin (Director, Turn Me Loose Off-Broadway; former Co-Artistic Director and Executive Director of LAByrinth Theater Company)

This 5-week class is for theater artists of any discipline to learn about theater as a business in order to produce your own work and better understand the priorities for your work no matter your role within a production.
