Made Conjures Dragons Workshop and Showcase

Produced by Poetry Is Productions in collaboration with the Naropa New Works Cabaret. Please contact Ellie Swensson for more information at boulderwriterswarehouse@gmail.com

Join Poetry Is for a day of on-your-feet workshopping of a brand new improvised musical! 
Artistic Director Robert Eric Shoemaker has created a new telling of the Medea myth that recalls current events as well as timeless elements including magic and witchcraft. Plus, "medea conjures dragons" is a musical, sung elements to be improvised in rehearsal!
This workshop provides a platform for the piece to get to its feet, culminating in a showcase alongside Naropa's performance and theatre artists. 
Participants will collaborate in a 2 hour developmental rehearsal involving movement, vocals, and text. See schedule below for more information.
Please contact Eric (robertericshoemaker@gmail.com) if you would like to be involved with either/both the "medea" workshop or the cabaret showcase. Note: joining the Facebook event DOES NOT secure your spot, so you need to email Eric.
