Advanced Directing

Stage directors rarely have the opportunity to exchange ideas and work directly with other experienced directors. In this hands-on workshop, directors will work with actors to explore advanced techniques of staging, theatrical conventions, script analysis and communicating effectively with actors. As each director works with the actors, the directing group will act as the audience, analyzing and discussing the various elements being explored. Intructed by Tommy Wedge.

Free admission, registration required.

Destination: ArtPrize

The greatest achievement of ArtPrize is its ability to attract a diverse population of artists and visitors, bring them together for 19 days and engage in a critical ‘discussion’ about contemporary art. All of this happens without a centralized curatorial influence; simply artists collaborating with their venue to curate dramatic exhibitions.

ArtPrize is a multi-venture upwards of 1800 artists’ exhibition that happens in a three-square miles area of downtown Grand Rapids to compete for a combination of public votes and juried prizes and secure part of the world’s largest art prize, totaling $560,000. Great Lakes Bay Area artists always have a strong showing at ArtPrize. A complete list of participating artists and venues can all be viewed at www.artprize.org/entries. Join us for a full-day trip to Grand Rapids, view ArtPrize contest entries at a variety of locations and cast YOUR votes. A charter bus will depart at 8 am from Midland Center for the Arts. Upon arrival, gallery viewing will be on your own or in small groups. Groups have the option to meet periodically throughout the day to swap stories, for a midday meal, special viewings and transport to other locations (itinerary to be determined). Be sure to arrive at the Center no later than 7:45 am.

Please note that members must register via the Ticket Office to receive their member discount.
