Performance Project Residencies culminate in an original production generated during the residency. Residencies can also be shaped around an exploratory approach to a pre-scripted play, or a performance work from the Company's repertory.
Each residency is a unique collaborative experience, driven by Margolis Method principles. True to form, the Performance Project Residency places the actor at the center of the creative process.
Performance Project Residencies generally run from three to six weeks meeting several hours each day.
ATME GALLERY WALK INFORMATION
Below are selected samples of production visuals from multiple university residencies lead by Kari Margolis that we will be sharing at the Gallery Walk. We chose a range of evening-length, devised productions, as well as Tennessee Williams’ Streetcar Named Desire created for Montclair State University as an example of Margolis Method working with pre-scripted material.
We are designing handouts, that will give a description of the creative process used for each production as well as details pertaining to the specific residency. Our goal is to offer a deeper understanding of Margolis Method and how its principles and concrete exercises and improvisational structures synthesize actor training with the creation and rehearsal process.
