New Fellowship for Emerging Directors

New Fellowship for Emerging Directors

The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, in partnership with the Kennedy Center,National New Play Network and Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation, announced a new National Directors Fellowship on Tuesday, American Theatre has learned exclusively.

Planned to run over five years, the program will provide a total of 25 early-career directors with 18 months of professional development opportunities and hands-on experience each, culminating in a potential directing opportunity at an NNPN theatre.

“We want to be an agent of change with this program, in terms of breaking the hamster wheel where emerging directors are stuck in this consistent track of assistant directorships,” said Preston Whiteway, executive director of the O’Neill Center. “How do you ever get that full production if no one’s going to take a chance on you?”

That’s a question Wendy C. Goldberg has been asking herself for years. As artistic director of the O’Neill’s National Playwrights Conference, she has devoted her time to helping writers. She brought up the idea of starting a directors fellowship two years ago when she noticed, from her own experience as a director, that there weren’t as many opportunities for rising directors as there were for playwrights.

“I’ve been a professional director for 15 years, and in the last 15 years, look at how many more opportunities have emerged for playwrights, and I can still look at essentially the same three to four programs that were trailblazers in director outreach and training,” Goldberg explained. “There’s a perception issue that because there are so many playwright opportunities that equals director opportunities.”

With a $200,000 grant from the Doris Duke Foundation, along with some additional funding, the National Directors Fellowship plans to welcome a new class of 5 fellows every 12 months for its 18-month program. The curriculum begins with a week at the O’Neill’s National Playwrights Conference at the end of July, where the fellows will observe rehearsals and potentially assist in the room, as well as attend additional seminars with industry professionals.

From the O’Neill, the cohort will go directly to the Kennedy Center for an MFA playwrights’ workshop and directing intensive, led by NNPN and the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. The group will then return to the O’Neill in January for more intensive curriculum, as well as the opportunity to work on directing a play by a living writer with professional actors. The directing fellows will also have esteemed working directors available for mentoring and advice while working on these projects.

The entire program concludes with a residency at an NNPN core theatre, where the director fellows might have the chance to direct or assist on a production. The O’Neill will accept applications for the fellowship Jan. 12-16, 2015.

“We have to be certain that someone is really trying to make a concerted effort to make this their career path,” Goldberg said of what she’s looking for in applicants. “We’re also going to be looking at people who understand that we are specific to new play work, and people who really understand and are devoted to writers as a core value of what they do.”

Added Whiteway, “We are keeping it a little bit vague on purpose because we do want to find the person who didn’t necessarily go through an MFA program for directing, but who is doing great things with little visibility in Kansas City or Denver or Portland. Part of this grant is about finding folks who aren’t necessarily on the MFA directing track.”

NNPN executive director Nan Barnett said that what NNPN brings to the partnership is the ability to expose the fellows to all different forms of work across the country. “The program is going to evolve as the directors themselves evolve,” Barnett said, adding that fellows will have the chance to network with and possibly collaborate with NNPN’s 29 core theatres, as well as their associate members, who focus on all types of work, including devised, solo and ensemble-driven pieces. NNPN has theatres in 57 cities across the U.S., providing geographic diversity as well.

“NNPN matches very well with launching careers for early career directors, and this program is trying to make it easier for these theatres, which are on a smaller budget scale and don’t always have the funding to bring someone in from out of town and house them,” Whiteway explained. “It funds the director to go wherever they need to go and pays for the salary.”

With the O’Neill’s campus expansion this year, the Waterford location has 65 additional beds and more rehearsal spaces, which are helping to accommodate new initiatives like the directing fellowship.

“We’re interested to see what comes in,” Whiteway says of applicants. “We want to find the undiscovered talent.

The Red Forest Campaign stunt is simple. It involves unfurling a 300m red banner – a symbolic red line against dirty and unsafe forms of energy production.  As with all BFT campaigns there is direct link to Belarus at its heart though the issues are universal, in this case we support the work of a small but tireless group of Belarusian campaigners protesting against the building of an unsafe nuclear power station on the borders of the European Union. 

Securing the Millenium Bridge for our first stunt in London has set the bar high, so Via Alessandrina in Rome, chosen by the organisers of the Festival dei Vei where BFT performed Red Forest this week, was perfect, running past some of the most beautiful ancient, iconic sites in Rome.  There were over 100 people involved in the stunt, and the Minister of Culture from the city council and Rai TV crew came to make a short news feature to be broadcast next week.

At 300 m long – the red line banner is far too long for the cast of Red Forest to carry alone. We invite our audience to join us and crucially we also connect with local campaigning organisations with shared concerns, to give it local significance and to encourage their members to participate in the stunt. So in London and Edinburgh, where we did the stunt during the festival, we worked with anti-fracking campaigners and in Rome we linked up with ASUD’s campaign against Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

There is probably no other current issue that threatens environmental rights and safeguards more than TTIP. ASUD was delighted to have this additional platform and brought a crowd of their supporters and volunteers to perform the stunt with the BFT actors. Tatyana Novikova, Belarus Anti-nuclear Campaign articulates the threat TTIP represents to international standards:

"TTIP is a signal for the rest of the world and for the European countries, in particular on the Post-Soviet space, that democracy and environmental standards could be revised and subordinated to the interests of business. This is very dangerous trend, the experience of Fukushima and Chernobyl confirmed that". 

The campaign and the show are called Red Forest because, after the disaster at Chernobyl in 1986, the forest turned red. 70% of Belarus was contaminated.  Please sign our petition and prevent another Chernobyl today.

 

Price of Money

Price of Money premiered in September 2014 at the Albany Theatre and received a fantastic reception from audience and critics alike. This new production explored the central role of money in our lives, from ancient Greece references to the fractured economy of today. 
 

Hard-hitting, fast paced… a work that is not afraid to pin its political colours to the mast

Time of Women

 
Time of Women is Belarus Free Theatre 's latest production that will premiere at various underground locations in Belarus before Christmas. This brand new play presents the story of three women who are currently being held in a KGB jail after a crackdown on democratic forces in Belarus in 2010. It aims to capture the reality of the interrogation techniques that are used in KGB jails to this day.

Theatre of Witness experimental workshop with Teya Sepinuck – December 6th. Philadelphia

Theatre of Witness experimental workshop with Teya Sepinuck – December 6th. Philadelphia

 

Teya Sepinuck, MS (counseling), is the founder and artistic Director of Theatre of Witness – a form of performance in which the true life stories of those who haven’t been heard in society are performed by the people themselves as a way for audiences to bear witness to issues of suffering, transformation and peace. 

For 28 years, through ‘TOVA -Artistic Projects for Social Change’ which she founded and directed, and then through ‘The Playhouse Theatre of Witness Programme’ in Derry Northern Ireland, she has created original theater with trauma survivors, refugees, prisoners, ex-combatants, survivors of abuse. and families who have been deeply impacted by violence. The European Union awarded two multi-year Peace 111 to grants for her work in Northern Ireland with former soldiers, security forces personnel, and victims and witnesses of the ‘Troubles’. The productions have since been made into film documentaries for ongoing dissemination in workshops, and one of her most recent productions has aired on the BBC. Her work humanizes the other and is founded on the premise of ‘finding the medicine’ in stories of deep suffering, and peace.

 

Teya was on the dance faculty at Swarthmore College from 1974-1991 where she taught composition, improvisation and technique, and later, “The Arts as Community Service, Social Change.” She is the recipient of the Philadelphia Human Rights Award for Arts and Culture from The Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations, a Local Hero Award from the Bank of America, as well as the Cultural Arts Award from Women’s Way and the Mayor’s Commission on Women. She was just named the Chair of Theatrical Innovation by Holywell Trust, an organization in Northern Ireland devoted to peace and reconciliation. She has a long time meditation practice which informs all of her work and life. Teya is currently teaching Theatre of Witness at Juniata College and is setting up an International Academy for Theatre of Witness. Her book, ‘Theatre of Witness – Finding the Medicine in Stories of Suffering, Transformation and Peace’ was published in February 2013 by Jessica Kingsley Press.

 

Theater of Witness is a form of performance developed by it’s founder and artistic director Teya Sepinuck, in which the true life stories oft hose whose voices haven’t been heard in society are performed by the story-tellers themselves as a way for audiences to bear witness to significant social issues. The theater productions are scripted from individual and group interviews as well as a variety of creative process techniques and consist of scripted tect, music, movement, imagery and film projection. The productions are created with the performers who themselves have directly experienced the issues being explored. Theater of Witness invites audiences to put a face and heart to societal issues of suffering and to celebrate the power of the human spirit to grow and transform. Theater of Witness aims to humanize ‘the other’, and to be a form of peace building and inspiration.

Free University of Brussels; Call for papers: Translation in Exile

Free University of Brussels; Call for papers: Translation in Exile

International Conference organized by the Centre for Literature in Translation of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University, in cooperation with the University of Santiago de Compostela and the Federal University of Santa Catarina.

Venue: Vrije Universiteit Brussel, December 10-11, 2015

Bringing together scholars from different disciplines such as cultural studies, translation studies, area studies, comparative literature and anthropology, this conference aims at providing a new understanding of exile as a theoretical concept, analytical category, and lived experience in the study of the translation of (literary) texts.

From Ovid over Dante to Victor Hugo, D.H. Lawrence, Thomas Mann, Assia Djebar, Irmgard Keun, Mahmoud Darwish, Salman Rushdie and Julia Kristeva, just to name a few prominent authors, the experience of exile has profoundly influenced world literature throughout the centuries. For most of these literary émigrés, exile has never merely been a question of location, of being somewhere else, but also of being in a different culture, of which the foreign language is one of the most immediate features. Especially literary exiles experience the problem of the foreign language on a daily and unmediated basis. They are constantly translating or being translated. Their survival, financially and existentially, depends to a great extent on language.

Exiled writers can translate themselves, be translated or become translators of other authors’ works. Present-day Europe has a number of immigrant writers who publish in the language of their country of adoption, with differing degrees of acceptance of the norms of their new language. Some of them are harassed by authorities, confronted with censorship, excluded from literary institutions, submitted to physical and psychological threats, living in fear of imprisonment. They were forced to leave their homes because of ideological, ethnic, religious, or moral reasons. Others were accused of lack of patriotism in war times or were regarded as obscene by moral conservatives. However, the émigré translator can become a catalyst for conceptualising alternative worlds by initiating a dialogue with works of world literature. Exiled writers have put to use their knowledge of languages by translating either works of their homeland into the adopted language, or the other way

round. Vladimir Nabokov translated Pushkin, Cabrera Infante translated James Joyce, Pedro Salinas translated Marcel Proust, Hans-Henning Paetzke translated György Konrád, Felix Pollak translated Heinrich Heine. Some of them also translated their own work into the language of adoption: Nabokov translated his early works into English, as did Cabrera Infante. The examples are legion.

 

This conference will touch on questions of multilingualism and displacement, and on their methodological implications for translation studies, first and foremost with regard to translating literary texts as a political and cultural practice. This conference wants to plead for a less metaphorical and more empirical understanding of translation. The focus will thus be on the interlingual nature of translation and exile as an interstitial locus of enunciation. The aim of the conference is to further our understanding of the authors’ experiences of exile, their function, opportunities and problems as (self-) translators, as well as explore how these émigrés have documented and represented their stories. It aims at circumnavigating a broad spatial and temporal spectrum. The focus of the conference is neither limited to the analysis of translation in the context of European languages and cultures, nor to one specific historical period.

 

Submissions for 20-minute papers may include, but are not restricted to:

– theoretical approaches to the concept of ‘exile’ in translation

– translation as agency and medium of political commitment in exile (issues of freedom, resistance and human rights)

– the relation between the translator/publisher and the exiled author

– translation and diasporic communities

– ‘inner emigration’ and translation

– Samizdat and translation

– influence of translation in exile on canon formation

– postcolonial studies in relation to translation and exile

– imagology and translation in exile

– translation, censorship and persecution

– exile journals as media establishing a critical counter-hegemony of literary texts and their translations

– self-translation and the question of exiled authors writing in adopted languages

– the role of remigrés in the post-World War II professionalization of the translator
