Weekend of Workshops provides a platform for directors, devisers, and performers to hone and delve into their craft. This winter, audiences will experience a blend of new and familiar pieces, both devised and revised. The Weekend of Workshops is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression for every participant in this intimate space.
