Hello All,

1)      I am still looking for faculty to participate in a panel discussion towards the beginning of the festival Defining and Discussing Devised Theatre. Please contact me before Nov. 30 if you are willing and able.

2)      There is still time to register to bring a devised piece to festival using the prompt below -  "Welcome Home."  The deadline is Nov. 30, so if you have questions, please get in touch with naomi.baker at wilkes.edu<mailto:naomi.baker at wilkes.edu>.
Devised Prompt - One per school.

The Prompt:


-The roles and contributions of the performing ensemble are to be balanced and evenly distributed.

-At least one textual source will be from the poetry of Walt Whitman

-Music, generated by the ensemble, will be included.

-A period of extended silence will be incorporated into the project.

3)      We will have several workshops and a panel discussion during the festival on devising theatre.
