WORKSHOP

Intimacy and Consent for the Community Theatre

Presented by Amelia Morse

Amelia will explore the concept of consent based practices. She strongly believes that people do their best work when they are fully informed. Making sure her students and clients feel safe is her top priority. The class will address how each participant can identify their 'Actor Values' and use them when making decisions about what types of roles they’d feel the most confident performing.

WORKSHOP / TOUR

Tour of CMC Prototype Lab

Presented by Brian Tinker (CMC’s Isaacson School for Communication Arts and Media)

Join us for a workshop experience at Colorado Mountain College’s Isaacson School Prototype Lab. Explore how non-traditional tools and methods can enhance your productions. 3D printers, CNC machines, vinyl plotters, and more can provide unique ways to create props, set pieces and custom fittings for lighting and audio. You may not have all of these tools in your shop, but the rapidly emerging makerspace movement can provide partnership opportunities to provide access. Workshop participants will also serigraph a Colorado Theatre Festival 2019 T-shirt as a memento of the workshop.
