Bechdel Project Founding Artists will lead your students and faculty through their unique mix of interactive exercises. Participants leave with a new awareness as well as feeling empowered to make a change in their world. Past participants have called it "Life-changing" and "Inspirational."
3 Day Residency:
The 3-day residency builds on the exercises in the 1-day residency and quickly moves into writing short Bechdel passing works. Day 2 is spent on new work and rewrites, and on Day 3 those pieces are presented in a staged reading. "One of the most amazing things I have ever experienced."
1 Week Residency:
Our most intensive residency. Three sessions per day consisting of a morning writing block, afternoons built around Bechdel Project’s unique physical practice and ensemble building exercises, followed by evening writing, devising, or rehearsals. The week culminates with a performance of the student’s work. Suitable for up to 18 highly motivated participants.
6 Week Residency:
A complete immersion into female narratives written and performed by your students. While the 3-day Residency is a quick sketch, our 6-week Residency allows for a deeper unpacking and exploration of women’s stories. Students write pieces that are then staged as a bare-bones evening of short works or combined into a singular company-devised piece. In either case, you have a night of theatre that can be presented as a stand-alone event or be part of the season.
