InterMISSION Forum#3: Enrolling collaborators

How do we enrol each other as collaborators? This question will be explored through a staged conversation, in which two established theatre makers will discuss working together on a theatre project. 

Leo Gene Peters (a slightly isolated dog) will facilitate a discussion on collaboration. 

The speakers will be Angela Green and Murry Hickman.

Monday 16 May, 6pm @ the Hub in Toi Poneke, The Arts Centre. 

Murray Hickman is the founder and artistic director of Strike Percussion. Strike formed in 1997 and have since toured extensively nationally and internationally. A high quality percussion ensemble working within a theatrical form, Strike collaborate with numerous theatre artists and composers. Originally trained as a classical percussionist, Murray composes for, performs in, produces and manages one of NZs only full time music ensembles.

Angela Green has worked in the Wellington theatre scene for 9 years. Trained as an actor, Angela has moved into producing, and in the last two years has been the Associate Producer of Programming at Downstage.

Murray and Angela have worked together on various Strike projects over the last five years, including “Elemental”, “In The Cube”, and “Strike with Warren Maxwell”. 

We invite all theatre artists to join us for these conversations.  

What is InterMISSION?

The Wellington Producer’s Room are resuming their successful discussion series that was piloted last year, and present to you InterMISSION.

InterMISSION is a series of FREE facilitated forums between emerging and established theatre practitioners, where we meet and address questions of critical importance for the success of our artform in New Zealand, for ourselves as practitioners within the theatre sector, and to ensure the delivery of quality art experiences to our audiences.

The discussion will encourage values of honesty, concrete specificity, generosity and curiosity, so that those involved can interrogate their own work with the group present. And through this process, consequently, build a space where we come together communally to interrogate and evolve our work.

These forums are supported by Creative Communities funding through Creative NZ and Wellington City Council.

The final forum is scheduled for:

Thursday 9 June, 6pm – How do we discuss as peers, each others work in a meaningful and supportive way to encourage greater rigour in our practice? This question will be explored through a forum discussing the recent work Death and the Dreamlife of Elephants.
