NET Events and Gatherings

 

             

By the end of 2020, over 100 NET ensemble members will be celebrating either a milestone anniversary (in a multiple of five), or an anniversary of over 20 or 40 years in operation. The legacy of ensemble practice is strong, and we're taking the year to grow our network, take stock of our work thus far, and envision our community's path forward.

Join NET for Ensemble MacroFest USA 2020,a year-long, rolling, nationwide celebration of ensemble theater, featuring events in Albuquerque, Denver, New Orleans, New York City, San Francisco, Vermont, Western Massachusetts, and beyond. EMFUSA 2020 will explore the “state of the art” of ensemble practice and performance-making in the U.S. Each event will feature opportunities for work, model, and resource-sharing; group learning focused on building equitable ensemble practices; and region-specific sessions based on the event's location.
