Industry Listing, Job Posting.

Spur-Of-The-Moment Shakespeare Collective is looking for three DIRECTORS for the next session of SHAKESPEARE-IN-HOSPITALS.

SHAKESPEARE-IN-HOSPITALS is a one-of-a-kind program that eliminates physical, economic, and social barriers to community engagement encountered in the health care sector using performance and classical text. Artists get the opportunity to engage in a creative conversation and build on a network with emerging and established artists from diverse backgrounds, while bringing the results to members of the health care community.
Using devised practices, this project uses scenes from various different plays in the cannon to construct a new story based on common themes and images. This year’s theme will explore what it means to change our identity.
