NET National Listening Tour Chicago Visit on 2/2
Tuesday, February 2, 5:30 - 9:30 PM
Steep Theatre, 1115 W. Berwyn
WHAT: Continuing on the NET National Listening Tour, Executive Director Alisha Tonsic, will meet in Chicago with ensemble practitioners and collaborative creators. Each stop on the Listening Tour will provide an opportunity for attendees to co-create the future of ensemble performance through learning about NET’s current programs and services, sharing their own needs and practices, and participating in collaborative vision conversations about how to propel ensemble practice to the forefront of our culture. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet old friends and new colleagues committed to ensemble practice and collaborative creation. This event is co-hosted by NET members Halcyon Theatre, Steep Theatre Company, and Walkabout Theater Company.
WHO: Anyone who is interested in ensemble performance and collaborative creation: current NET members (and not), ensemble theatres, dance collectives, music ensembles, circus or puppet or burlesque troupes, comedy improv groups, cultural or community organizers, educators, students, individual artists and practitioners, faith communities, local legislators, community non-profits and associations, co-ops, the ensemble curious, and more! If you think you should be in the room, please come!
WHY: Because NET has a vision of a world where ensemble practice and collaborative creation are at the forefront of our culture, and we need YOU to make that vision a reality!
