COVID-19 Updates expand
After careful consideration of current projections surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, Skidmore College has made the difficult decision to cancel all on-campus summer institutes, camps, conferences, events, and academic programs. All advance registration and program fees for summer programming will be refunded. We very much regret the necessity for this action and share in the disappointment it brings, but the well-being of our local and extended community must continue to be our highest priority. We look forward to a time very soon when we can safely be together.
2020 Workshop: June 7 – July 4 - cancelled
Sixty artists are invited to take part in an intensive workshop that includes rigorous, 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 new influences from many disciplines into their work. The curriculum is designed for pre-professional and professional artists and is available for Skidmore College undergraduate credit.
SITI Company 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. Since 1992, SITI Company has challenged the status quo, trained to achieve artistic excellence in every aspect of their work, and offered new ways of defining artists as global citizens. They are known world-wide for their performances, educational programs and collaborations with other artists and thinkers. SITI Company is committed to creating opportunities where the interaction of ideas, artists and audiences inspire the possibility for change, optimism and hope.
We will be hosting a series of guest artists to share their collaborative processes with workshop participants. Over the last decade SITI has focused their work on collaborations with prolific artists and companies. By exploring the work of these artists alongside the core training of the Suzuki Method, Viewpoints and Composition, participants can experience the fullness of this collaborative process. Special guest artists Charles L. Mee, Monica Bill Barnes and Rubén Polendo of Theater Mitu will be in residence leading these efforts within our community.
