24 hour CHALLENGE is coming.
November 4-5, 2017
Jump start a new idea, scratch an itch, or realize a long held dream. Whether it’s a one act comedy of manners, the next Inconvenient Truth presentation, shadow puppets, a song cycle, or something none of us have thought of, this is a great chance to kick start a project, get some time with directors, dramaturges, performers, and an audience.
New this year, we perform excerpts on the very same day they were made, in the same inspired and delirious state.
Start at noon, finish creating at noon. Rehearse until 6, show and drinks at 7, awards at 10. Sleep as required.
Past participants have come from eclectic backgrounds and included teachers, paramedics, accountants, actors, writers, musicians, mechanics, government administrators, lawyers, and one highly motivated elementary school student.
We’re also encouraging teams of people to work together on making a thing. Sketch troupes, research teams, co-workers or theatrical families — all are welcome.
Before and after the weekend: Workshops and conversations with Jacob Zimmer. Talk through inspiration and strategy before hand and discuss possible futures after. These will be available to all participants but are not required.
$100 for teams of 2 or less
$150 for teams of 3 or more
