Introducing Rumble's Interim Managing Producer
We are pleased to announce that Laura Efron
will be stepping into the role of Interim Managing Producer this May. Laura is an experienced and enthusiastic arts administrator who some of you may already know as Rumble's former General Manager and a co-founder of Progress Lab 1422.
We're thrilled to have her join us for the year.
Welcome back, Laura!
Theatre & Friends at The Living Room
Our third Living Room
of the season took place last week (Feb 28) in the cozy confines of the PL1422 studio. Guest speakers Marcus Youssef and James Long (co-creators of the ultimate theatrical friendship test Winners and Losers
), along with moderator Chelsea Haberlin, tackled the subject of making theatre with one's friends.
As always, there was a lot of wonderful and insightful discussion. Elizabeth Willow, a former Rumble Student Ambassador and Tremors 2016 artist (she played 'Reba' in Dry Land
), was in attendance. She wrote a terrific blog post about the session, which you can read here
Things get personal at the next Living Room
Inside everyone is a story. And sometimes that story ends up onstage as a one-person show! But what’s the cost of making a play about yourself? What if you’re not a “playwright” but you have a great story to tell? Where do you find the courage to share your personal secrets?
The fourth and final Living Room of the season, "Private = public: putting your own story onstage", is slated for Monday, May 15. We'll be talking with two guest artists who have turned their personal history into public theatre: Tetsuro Shigematsu (playwright, performer for Empire of the Son) and Quelemia Sparrow (playwright, performer for O’wet/Lost Lagoon). Pedro Chamale, playwright, performer and co-AD of rice & beans theatre, will moderate the session.
