Day Long Workshop

Spend a day in the life of an Indy Convergence participant. These one day workshops will highlight the unique style of collaborative performance creation The Indy Convergence has developed. Participants will take a morning movement class, 2 workshops taught by former participants and work with The Indy Convergence Artistic Director, Robert Negron, to create a shortened version of an “Umbrella Project”- a wholly collaborative project where the talents of each participant is called upon to create a cohesive, thoughtful story or idea.

3-Day Artistic Retreat for Professional Artists

Host the Indy Convergence at your theater or community center for a “mini-indy” 3 Day Retreat. It is an intense, jam packed three days of artistic innovation sure to generate thought-provoking discussions and huge leaps in your work. Over the three days each participant will:

  • Take daily movement classes
  • Teach or participate a workshops taught by other participants
  • Lead or participate in a mini-indy project
  • Take part in the final informal showing of work created in just three days

Three projects will be chosen to be mini-indy projects. Each project leader will use the talents and skills of the participants to focus on one part of their artistic process. The goal of this “mini-indy” is for artists to give themselves the permission to start a new project or process without fear of failure. By embracing the idea of “say yes” the jitters, bad ideas, long-winded explanations disappear allowing you, the artist, to focus on the core of your work and what you want to share with an audience.

STANDARD FEE: $1200
