Production Description

Seeking participants for The Ume Group's Training Ensemble program, a three-month-long weekly course consisting of teaching, learning, and ensemble-driven creative components. Casting director states: "Members of the training ensemble will have the opportunity to receive free training in a variety of physical disciplines including Butoh, gymnastics, yoga, and commedia dell'arte. On the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, they join members of The Ume Group's growing learning community in their free and interdisciplinary 'Open Training' sessions, serving both as participants and once each quarter as a guest teacher. On the alternate Tuesdays, the ensemble meets to create and refine short works of physical theater revolving around a central theme and/or utilizing a new and specific creative process. Every three months the central themes and core creative process change. Each quarter culminates in an informal showcase at The Ume Group's rehearsal space on the Upper West Side. This quarter will focus on commedia and will be led by Ume Group Training Ensemble Alumna Fabio Motta. Fabio's theatrical training includes The Accademia Teatrale Veneta (Venice, Italy) where he completed a master in Commedia Dell'Arte, and he returned from France after working with Clown Master Philippe Gaulier at The Ecole Philippe."
