Downtown Opportunities for Directors and Choreographers
On October 1, 1998, SDCF hosted a panel on Downtown Opportunities for Directing and Choreography featuring producers from the vibrant downtown NY theatre scene including John Clancy, Ellie Covan, Kristin Marting, Wendy Rohan, Mark Russell, and David Tyree. These artistic leaders at the head of particularly prolific producing and presenting organizations discuss everything an artist or producer needs to know about working through these organizations. They explain why it is absolutely imperative to visit the space and understand the work of the organization before applying to the organization. They talk about their desire to create communities, and they shed light on the challenges of leading this type of arts organization. This conversation is valuable listening for artists, producers and administrators planning to approach or working within a smaller, vibrant, prolific organization.
