Reboot Yourself: Pig Iron school

Hello friends out in the big wide world! In 2020, on lockdown, Pig Iron offered its first slate of virtual workshops via Zoom. We had no idea how this would go. We’ve spent the past two decades as fiercely analog artists devoted to breath and space. But we do thrive within limitations, so…we gave it a go.

We were thrilled by the response to our offerings. Great work was made, tears were shed, chills were felt–and several classes were sold out, with students Zooming in from London to Philly to Mexico City to Singapore. The feedback was overwhelming. 100% of students agreed, “I would recommend this class” and “I would study with this teacher again,” in our post-workshop survey. So it looks like this meets a need!

This spring, we’re bringing you another round of virtual workshops: REBOOT YOURSELF.
Each workshop is approximately 12-15 hours of class time. Class size is limited to 10-15 students. Our goals remain: to give you new vocabulary to make your own work, share our artistic obsessions with hungry theatremakers, and to create virtual ensembles of artists who want to reach new frontiers.

More information on the workshops and how to apply is below. Discounts are available for students who wish to participate in more than one workshop.

Announcing ARC’s New Safety Guide for Artists
From Uganda to Vietnam to Cuba, artists around the world are at risk. Never before has PEN America’s Artists at Risk Connection (ARC), which links imperiled artists to resources, received more calls for help.

That’s why today we are publishing A Safety Guide for Artists, a first-of-its-kind manual that offers practical strategies for artists to understand, navigate, and ultimately overcome risk. While such tools have been developed for journalists, human rights defenders, and cartoonists, no guide has been designed specifically for artists. That changes today.


Also available in Spanish and French.

#Theatre_VS_Coronavirus
The Cairo International Festival for Experimental Theatre (CIFET) is pleased to announce the call of participation for its upcoming 27th edition from 1- 11 September 2020  

CIFET is an annual festival organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Arab Republic of Egypt. The festival hosts and presents innovative works of Egyptian, Arab and international troupes, with a focus on performances that aesthetically deviate from mainstream theatre production.
The pandemic and the precautionary measures that followed have posed a challenge to theatrical practice, whether in production or reception. However, the festival will proceed despite these challenges. We believe the show must go on.
