In February 2011, SDCF Associate Director Ellen Rusconi moderated a Director/Choreographer Network roundtable discussion with The Civilians Artistic Director Steve Cosson and PearlDamour's Katie Pearl on producing one's own work as a director. The two directors offer contrasting experiences of developing their companies, from the structural basis of the Civilians to the organic beginnings of PearlDamour. Both discuss the meaning of stability in the artistic and financial lives of their companies, from finding funding to the initiation of projects. Other topics include New York City versus regional productions, touring, networking, and creating long-term relationships and community to sustain your work. Listen to this fascinating discussion to discover what is driving small theatre companies today and how they continue make art happen.
