Since our beginnings, Theatre Replacement has placed a strong focus on training, with the intention of furthering our own practices and offering the same to our vibrant community of artists.
In the company’s first year of existence we started a biweekly training room called CORE. This program was originally run with The Only Animal, and offered both company’s respective training practices to a dedicated group of emerging artists who would come together every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Of interest to actors, dancers, directors and individuals, CORE completed in 2007.
Following this, we started SPARK, a week-long training and creation intensive taught by Yamamoto and Long which happened every other summer and culminated in a public presentation. Over the week, a group of 12-15 actors, dancers, directors and teachers spent the mornings training, and the afternoons working on creating material from a specific thematic source. Material creation was drawn from TR’s methodologies and was highly collaborative. SPARK completed in 2009.
Theatre Replacement’s programming depends on the generosity of our community of donors and sponsors. Please consider making a donation today.Donate Now
