The uniqueness of ShPIeL is to develop the work of the actor, performance artists, theatre artists, playwrights, and directors who are dedicated to exploring identities, cultural narratives, and heritage in their artistic process for new artistic work.
Through putting a “creative seeking”, theatre and performance artists use fresh ideas and perspectives in a transcultural engagement with heritage and identity. Artists will passionately search to extend their boundaries of theatre and performance as they utilize authentic resources, in light of the “other.”
A Catalyst & Producer
A community will be established to achieve the following outcomes: workshops/intensive retreats with recognized artists-in-residence; ongoing intercultural dialogue in the community; showcasing and producing dynamic cultural and identity works; professional and peer mentoring opportunities; being a producer for theatre and performance artists, with challenging work for a newly transcultural world.
