2012 AATE Conference Lexington: Charging Ahead in Theatre Education
Rather than allowing current economic challenges, organizational structures, and audience appetites to limit our creativity and tempt us to work from a space of fear, how might these limitations be a useful catalyst for creativity? This session will share and interrogate deliberate approaches (taken by the panelists) to different aspects of Theatre for Young Audiences that have affected important shifts in organizational ideology and methodology. Panel participants will share recent acts of innovation and subversion, ranging from radical actions to gentle disturbances, in their artistic, leadership, and/or organizational practices that have disrupted or altered established patterns of working with beneficial results. Each panelist will present a short case study detailing the given circumstances framing their approach and a description of the action they chose to disrupt or alter those circumstances. The case study presentations will be followed by dialogue/brainstorming session amongst the panelists and the participants to examine and interrogate other practices or situations would benefit from unorthodox approaches and problem solving.
