ABOUT KLECKSOGRAPHY 2019

Rorschach will lead a collaboration with five other theatre companies, Theater Alliance, Flying V, Solas Nua, Longacre Lea, and others to be announced 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, June 15 10AM-Noon, Rehearsals: Monday, June 17 thru Friday, June 21, Tech & Performances June 22.

Compensation: all positions are paid and non-AEA
