"Is there no play,
To ease the anguish

of a torturing hour?"

2023 SCENE STUDY CLASSES

Devised Work in Process: American Addict

Dates: January 9th - February 18th
Monday - Thursday 6-9 pm
Students select two classes per week
7108 E Lowry Blvd Denver 80230

This class will focus on how to create devised work on stage. Actors, directors, and writers are encouraged to apply for this class. The material to be researched and created will focus on alcoholism and other forms of addiction in contemporary American culture. The Ensemble of artists that come together for this class will research multiple topics related to addiction including medicine, science, psychology, the history of AA and other support groups, and most importantly will conduct interviews with addicts themselves. These interviews will be the primary material used for the script with the working title American Addict. At the end of 5 weeks of research, classes, writing, and rehearsals, students will perform a series of staged readings of the material created in class.

Jennifer McCray Rincon, teacher and director of the project, has extensive experience creating, producing, and directing devised work. She was in residence at the DCPA during the world premiere of Moises Kaufman’s The Laramie Project, and directed one of the first ever productions of the piece. She continued this process in her collaboration with actor Bill Pullman on multiple productions including Expedition 6, The Wild Hunt, and Seeking Charlie Russell.  Visionbox will focus their producing work in 2023 on the development of new intermedia performance work that focuses on the moral and human issues of our time. This continues a tradition that began in our first season with The Othello Project, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello that incorporated contemporary interview with survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence. Any artist interested in participating in this unique classwork should send a headshot and resume to info@visionbox.org to set up an interview for the week of January 2nd.
