THE MAKING OF... AMERICA IS HARD TO SEE

FEBRUARY 24, 2018 / 2PM-5PM / HERE MAINSTAGE

Go behind-the-scenes and discover how we constructed this documentary play using countless hours of in-depth field interviews and archival research. Led by TRAVIS RUSS (Playwright & Director) and PRISCILLA HOLBROOK (Composer), this workshop will unpack how we transformed thousands of pages of transcripts and documents into a play that The New York Times called, "A smart and troubling new piece of documentary theater."


THE Storytelling Project

SUMMER 2018 / FORDHAM UNIVERSITY

Led by award winning playwright/director, TRAVIS RUSS, this hands-on course focuses on the art and science of human storytelling. During this multi-week experience, you will learn how to build and deliver powerful stories by exploring the following questions: What is your unique storytelling style? How do you know if a stories will inspire, motivate, and galvanize audiences to take action? What rhetorical devices can you use to enhance the narrative arc and dramatic progression of your stories? What techniques can you use to enhance your delivery as a great storyteller? At the end of this course you will perform onstage during a live storytelling event.  This course is offered in partnership with FORDHAM UNIVERSITY and may be completed for college credit.
