Devised Theatre: Curating, Producing, Presenting (A Practical Roundtable)

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center

Wednesday 12 December 2018

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center in New York City presented Devised Theatre: Curating, Producing, Presenting (A Practical Roundtable) livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Wednesday 12 December 2018 at 2:30 p.m. PST (San Francisco) / 4:30 p.m. CST (Chicago) / 5:30 p.m. EST (New York).

What is devised theater? This form, which confounds traditional notions of theatermaking, is itself confounding. It has come to mean many different (and sometimes conflicting) things, depending on the context. Join our working group discussion, featuring producing institutions, artists, legal experts, and scholars, as we attempt to create a comprehensive definition for the “devised theater.” What happens when the collaboration expands beyond traditional definitions? How is the work curated, produced, presented, compensated and credited?
