NET/TEN Shareback: NACL Theatre & Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble - Helpful Hints Playbook for Interview-based Theater

2012-13 Exchange Grant Recipient

NACL Theatre (Highland Lake, NY) and Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (New York, NY) exchanged arts enagement techniques as part of the NACL presenting season. Strike Anywhere brought their performance, Same River, an interview-based performance about hydraulic fracturing, back to the NACL community. Three years after birthing the show there, the topic remains a critical local issue. The project engaged community organizations and residents in interviews, workshops, art projects, and a town hall discussion.

SHAREBACK SUMMARY:

For their Shareback, NACL Theatre and Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble provided NET with a document titled, "Helpful Hints Playbook for Interview-based Theater" and a sample interviewee contact sheet. The downloadable playbook includes tips about interview preparation and includes communication strategies, advice about asking questions, and reminders about what should take place post-interview.
