Work with Co-Artistic Director Ellen Lauren in this four day workshop to reconnect to your voice, your body, the space, and others! Over four afternoons, you will build strength and clarity in your performance of prepared texts. With a focus on establishing and practicing the basic criteria of respiration, resonation, production of sound, and articulation, participating artists will learn how to be equipped with the ability to eliminate unnecessary tension that interferes with the free flow of thought and imagination while maintaining a heightened energy and concentration. Artists will also clarify their point of view on their selected text and develop a process of revision to continually improve. We are closely monitoring state and city guidance regarding capacity and safety protocols for this workshop. Participants should be prepared to provide proof of up to date COVID-19 vaccination, a recent negative PCR result, and to wear a mask when not actively speaking. Applications are due by Thursday 4/21

BIPOC Scholarships
SITI has a limited number of scholarships for BIPOC artists. To be considered for that scholarship, please email SITI offers these scholarships as a part of a larger effort to diversify our training room.
