2012-2013 Season,  A Wrinkle in Time

Information on Rehearsals and Devising Pt. 1

By Patrick Hayes, Dramaturg

Creating a performance from scratch can be a daunting task. Luckily A Wrinkle in Time has a formula for success. AWIT focuses on devised theatre practices to workshop and create the final performance. Unlike stage directions in a script or a director coaching the actors, devised theatre centers on an acting style or technique to help create the final performance. AWIT rehearsals are centered on a model of work shop and rehearsing scenes until the feel, emotion, or context for a given scene is reach. Doing this process insures the integrity of the message the company wants to convey.

Here, in this scene, the actors prepare by warming up.
