The Carpetbag Theatre Inc.
From Keryl McCord, Managing Director of Alternate ROOTS, about the USF experience:
"Reading the report, seeing the website, and looking at the video, it feels like this particular part of the project may establish a benchmark beyond which you only want to get better. In terms of community engagements this one is very right, very deep."
The Carpetbag Theatre, Inc is pleased to be
collaborating with the USF School of Theatre and Dance for this week in
residence at USF. As well as rehearsals in the Theatre Centre, members
of the company will be guest teaching in several classes over their week
in residence including Improvisation with USF students and students from Learning Gate Middle School and Directing, and conducting a Story
Circle Workshop with Scene Study and Advance Scene Study – discussing
with the students The Carpetbag Theatre, Inc.’s technique of using
personal stories, digital media, sound and original writings to make
theatrical works. The TheatreUSF students will also be
involved in the rehearsals of Speed Killed My Cousin as technical crew and support.
This residency is co-presented by Art2Action Inc., with support from the Alternate ROOTS Community/Artist Partnership Program. USF School of Theatre and Dance is excited to be involved in this partnership and have this company in residence.
