What is an Umbrella Project?
The Umbrella Project is an interdisciplinary collaborative piece in which everyone participates. It tends to center around a theme or specific source material.
What is a Side Project?
Side projects are the individual pieces that participants choose to work on. For the most part each participant leads one side project calling on the ensemble to help them bring it to fruition.
What is a Workshop?
Workshops give Indy Convergence the ability to connect with the community and learn from each others strengths. Each participant leads a class or exploration in their area of expertise. Past Workshops have included contact improv, opera for beginners, Shakespeare for children and even editing techniques.
How do you choose applicants each year?
As Indy Convergence has grown so has the quantity and caliber of applicants. The selection process is based on balancing a few key elements:
- Diversity of discipline
- Accommodating the needs of the side project proposals we receive. For example: one year might need more actors or opera singers.
- The unique ideas or talents that a particular applicant brings to the table
- Keeping a balance of out of state and local artists
