SITI Company at Skidmore College – 25th Anniversary Summer
Through our summer workshops we have mentored over 1,500 artists from around the world and helped them to create work that reaches beyond boundaries–beyond the boundaries of traditional theater, beyond the boundaries of the United States, and beyond the boundaries of pre-existing paradigms.
Whether you are an artist considering training with us for the first time, or you are already a member of the extended SITI family, we encourage you to share in our excitement and follow along as we celebrate this milestone of providing a creative avenue where artists can form life-changing partnerships and their ideas can flourish.
June 3 – July 1, 2017
Sixty artists are invited to take part in an intensive workshop that includes hard, physical work, theoretical research, and the generation and performance of new work by each participant. The program's objective is to develop courageous theater artists who are able to integrate into their work new influences from many disciplines. The curriculum is designed for pre-professional and professional artists.
SITI Company, now in its 24th year, was built on the bedrock of ensemble with the belief that through the practice of collaboration, a group of artists working together over time can have a significant impact upon contemporary theater and the world at large. Through performances, educational programs and collaborations with other artists and thinkers, SITI Company challenges the status quo, trains to achieve artistic excellence in every aspect of their work, and offers new ways of defining artists as global citizens. SITI Company is committed to creating opportunities where the interaction of art, artists, audiences and ideas inspire the possibility for change, optimism and hope.
