Ensemble Creation Techniques Workshop
On Saturday, August 11, the Ghost Road Company will offer a one-day intensive in our development process. Participants will explore tools the company uses in developing devised performance, taught by Katharine Noon and members of the ensemble.
Participants will engage in exercises involving the development of language, imagery, character and story. Physical in nature, the workshop includes writing exercises and the creation of image and design ideas. Using an existing text and/or image, the participants will be guided through a condensed version of Ghost Road’s process of adaptation and storytelling. This workshop is for performers, directors, writers and designers interested in collaborative approaches to creating new work. We have spent more than 10 years developing our creation methods and look forward to sharing these with the greater Los Angeles theatre community.

The Bargain and the Butterfly
The Ghost Road Company just held the first work-in-progress showing of our latest project, The Bargain and the Butterfly. This new ensemble-devised project explores the dubious distinction between genius and insanity and uses Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story "The Artist of the Beautiful" as a primary jumping off point. Conceived and directed by Katharine Noon, performed by Ronnie Clark, Kimberly Glann, Christel Joy Johnson, Doug Sutherland and Brian Weir. Mark Seldis, producer and JoAnna Senatore, Assistant Director. Additional creative contributors: Sarah Broyles, Shaughn Buchholz, Devin Kasper.
At different points in the development of a piece we invite you to join us and see what we have created thus far. This part of the process is instrumental for us in that, through your feedback, we can assess what is resonating with you. This in turn gives us new ideas and direction in order to bring you the kind of theatrical experiences you come to appreciate.
July 25th - 26th 8pm only!
