In this episode of Theater Begins Here, we will enter the world of experimental theater. We've invited theater maker Rachel Jendrzejewski to join us to share how she defines, explores, and creates experimental work. As always, we will respond to questions from the live audience or those submitted via the Membership Podcast: Theater Begins Here Questions Form.
This Episode is for Those Who:
- Are interested in experimental theater.
- Are interested in challenging traditional theater.
- Are interested in different collaborative styles.
- Love Rachel Jendrzejewski's work and want to listen to her thoughts, ideas, and experiences.
SHOUTOUTS & ART CRUSHES For MEMORY LAWS (the Paderewski rock opera), it would be great to shoutout director Emily Mendelsohn, composers Chris Hepola and Jenna Wyse, and Tricklock Company in Albuquerque... many other incredible people have been involved along the way, but the bulk of the development happened with this team. (fwiw, I have been trying to keep a running list of people involved here: https://www.rachelka.com/memorylaws) For PASSION, I mainly want to acknowledge that it's a close collaboration with director Zoe Aja Moore. Again, many brilliant people have been instrumental along the way, but the initial concept was Zoe's and I've been honored to unpack it with her!
