MICHA: The Future of Theater

Do you have a dream about what the future of our theater can be, or a fear of what it will become?
Are there discussions, exercises, plays, songs, books, poems, films, artists, etc. that you feel should get attention but never do?
Are you working on a new book, performance, song, syllabus, idea…?
Are you new to the theater community and seek support or mentorship?
Do you wonder if there is such a thing as the theater community?
Do you typically dread group meetings and conference presentations? Are you looking to change things?

Then these 2 days are for you.

Join us July 5 & 6 for our 2014 open space weekend at Connecticut College on the beauty of the New London coastline.

Dear all,

In 2011 I sent an invitation encouraging everyone to join us for what was our first 2-day Theater of the Future, Open Space event. 75 artists attending from 10 countries gathered and the outcome was staggering: performances were given, classes taught, workshops planned, websites developed, Russian translated, songs sung and the structure of University syllabi as well as MICHA’s workshops and events developed and changed. What will happen this year when we give some time and space to your thoughts, talents and initiatives? Whether you are a performer, director, scholar, student, professional, a long time member of the Chekhov community or a newcomer we welcome you!

~ Jessica Cerullo and MICHA
