Call for Collaborators: Open Source

Writers, Musicians, Dancers, Poets and Performers Wanted for the OPEN SOURCE Theater Project.  Get away from the B.S. … meet new collaborators … create new work, and experiment!

Jessica Heidt (Artistic Director, Climate Theater) and Lex Leifheit (Executive Director, SOMArts Cultural Center) are joining forces and sharing space to host a weekend-long creative retreat for Bay Area artists. We are seeking a group of 12 individuals to participate in this pilot program.

If selected, you will be asked to:

-Turn off your cell phone and focus on creativity from August 21 at 8pm until August 23 at 7pm.

-Collaborate with a group of 2-3 people to write a short performance “blueprint”.

-Rehearse with a group of 2-3 people to perform someone else’s blueprint for your fellow artists

-Share the material created with your fellow artists to use or adapt for future projects and collaborations as they wish.

Our goal is to form a small, interdisciplinary creative community focused on impracticality and experimentation. If you are interested in joining OPEN SOURCE as a writer/performer or volunteer, please contact director Jessica Heidt at jessica@climatetheater.com. Space is limited so if you are interested please let us know sooner rather than later.
