“Moments of disruption are important for artists because in moments of uncertainty and even panic, artists are the ones who can return us to clarity.” -- Anne Bogart
June 13 – July 2, 2021
In light of current pandemic conditions, the 2021 Summer Theater Intensive will be offered online. SITI Company and Skidmore College have spent the past year exploring remote training, teaching and learning and we are confident and excited to offer this formative program using this new medium. We look forward to gathering with and challenging artists from around the world, just as we have done since 1992.
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.
The program will include SITI Company’s core Training of Suzuki and Viewpoints, classes addressing specific techniques for devising work, as well as additional content to include a series of new lectures by Anne Bogart.
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.
