KLECKSOGRAPHY: COLLECTIVE INK

Rorschach will lead a collaboration with five other theatre companies, Hissing Black Cat Theater, Pinky Swear Productions, Theater Alliance and Young Playwrights Theater to create six new 10-minute plays. The project focuses on networking and opportunity by pairing theatre leadership with artists new to their companies. Additionally, the project embraces the metaphor of the inkblot test by having all six plays inspired by just two prompts.  How will each company’s aesthetic influence the storytelling? Play-creation teams, each mentored by an artistic leader of a different theatre company, will be assembled via an open call for actors, playwrights and directors.

KEY DATES: Klex Kick Off: Saturday, May 26th 10AM-Noon, Rehearsals: Monday, May 28 thru Friday, June 1st, Tech & Performances June 2nd
