Women in Chicago
On Tuesday, December 4, 2012, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society hosted a panel on women directors and choreographers in Chicago with Rachel Rockwell, Joanie Schultz, Kimberly Senior, and Leigh Silverman. This informal town-hall discussion explores the positive and negative experiences women may encounter while pursuing a career as a director or choreographer. The conversation includes deliberation on the unique challenges and opportunities facing women directors and choreographers in Chicago and across the country. Together, the panel and the audience strive to answer the question, "How can all of us, our collaborators, theatres, service organizations, etc., support growth/continuance of women as directors and choreographers?"
