LECTURE DEMONSTRATIONS

The Lecture Demonstration Series will be performed once a month, free of charge to the public.  The concept for the Lecture Demonstration Series is inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s “Young People’s Concerts” with the New York Philharmonic.  We will provide education for the public of all ages, through a mentored collaboration with local professional and aspiring/emerging performing artists, in an entertaining Theatre Dance context. We will expose the audience to the process of creating Musical Dance Theatre and how cooperation between different arts and artists helps to build stronger artistic work and a stronger community.  We will emphasize the values of respect, curiosity and tolerance within our multicultural community.

(The Lecture Demonstrations will begin with an opening musical number.  We will then explore various aspects of the number in terms of technique, composition, dramatic intent & cultural references. At least 3 different Theatre Dance works will be performed, dissected and illuminated. The presentation will close with a final piece.  The lecture demonstrations will provide different creative artists to share their work in a theatrically curated live setting in front of a live audience.  The live audience feedback that this program provides is invaluable to a choreographer, director, composer or performer.  The program also provides education for the audience in a “behind the scenes look” at the creative process and will hopefully inspire some audience members to study or at least delve more deeply into the performing arts.)
