A.R.T.I. Workshop to focus on theater skills
posted: Jan. 06, 2022

The Africana Repertory Theatre of IUPUI (ARTI) will sponsor its first ever "CENTERSTAGE: A Theater Workshop," from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, January 22, 2022, at the university's Student Campus Center, 420 University Blvd. Indianapolis.
ARTI manager Dr. Les Etienne said the event addresses the commitment of his organization to heighten the capacity for theater to be an effective means of conveying culture, issues and life that embody the Africana diaspora. "This is to support and build on the efforts of those who create important narratives that tell our stories on stage in our own voice. We are uniquely positioned to facilitate merging of various key elements critical to successful theater production."
The following are workshop sessions offered:
1. THE SHOW. Playwriting and editing; directing; more effective and forceful acting. Methods for creating strong stories - conveyed with maximum impact on stage.
2. THE BUSINESS. Production development and setting timelines, budgeting, auditions, venue/box office concerns, fundraising, grant opportunities and marketing.
3. ACTING PLUS. Beyond conventional acting. Theatrical performances related to choreography, musical production and spoken word.
4. THE TECH. Exploration of techniques, technology and opportunities in lighting and sound, as well as video technology and special effects.
5. THE LOOK. The stage vision that accents the presentation. Artistic direction; set design and construction; props; make up and costuming.
Sessions will run concurrently and will be repeated, allowing each participant to attend either two of the topic areas addressed. Workshops will be led by a panel of experienced theater professionals, educators and practitioners who bring a wealth of diverse knowledge and skills. Presenters will be announced in January. The Workshop will also feature the director of IUPUI's Applied Theater program Emilio Robles as a session facilitator and other presenters will be nnounced in January.
"CENTERSTAGE: A Theater Workshop" is designed to attract a broad range of theater enthusiasts, from the novice to those pursuing careers in onstage production. The event is free to the public but preregistration is required. Parking is available in the Vermont Street garage conveniently attached to the campus center. For more information, go to
